Once admitted and enrolled in the pre-professional elementary education program, students will have to complete additional requirements to be admitted into the professional elementary education program. The professional elementary education program coursework is completed through a cohort model, with a new cohort beginning each May. Cohorts will complete classes following a specific two-year timeline.
2. Review Application Requirements
- Fall semester (begins in late August): August 1
- Spring semester (begins in late January): January 1
