Students must be admitted into the program to be able to register for certain courses, to participate in field experiences/practicums and to student teach. Admission to the Educator Preparation Program is on a rolling basis (anytime throughout the year, including the summer). It may take up to 4 weeks for processing the applications.

The ideal time to apply to the program is at the end of freshman year. This allows students to register for courses such as CI 280, CI 406, and CI 426.
