To enter and continue in any education program, students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.75 and earn at least a B- in each ED course required for the major or concentration.

Prior to enrollment in all senior-level ED courses, licensure students must meet the GPA and minimum grade requirements and pass all required MTEL tests. (Some individual courses have additional pre-requisites.) The Education Department also offers a Master of Education Degree with two areas of concentration: Elementary Education and Moderate Disabilities.
