Advising

Prospective Students

If you are interested in teaching, but not yet admitted to the College of Education, you should contact Dr. April Brecht.

Current Students

You should meet with your College of Education advisor at least once per semester to review your academic progress.  Your advisor will share important information about courses, program completion, and licensure requirements.

Students admitted provisionally will be assigned to Dr. April Brecht.

Fully admitted College of Education students will be assigned a faculty advisor.  Students may check Banner or EAB Campus for the assigned advisor.

**For 5-year Path Students: The College of Education advisors do not remove advising holds.  You must meet with your assigned advisor in Academic Services or your major for pre-registration.

**For Post-Bacc Students: All admitted College of Education students will have an initial advising appointment with Dr. April Brecht.  After initial enrollment all students will be assigned a faculty advisor.
