Admission and Registration
Admission and readmission of undergraduate students to the University is the responsibility of the director of admissions. Information about admission to the University is given in the General Information Catalog.
Information about admission to teacher preparation programs and to majors in the Department of Kinesiology and Health is available in the Office of the Dean, George I. Sánchez Building 2.110.
Admission to majors in kinesiology is restricted for internal transfer students. Students should see an advisor in the Office of the Dean, George I. Sánchez Building 2.110 for information.
Admission to the Professional Development Sequence
All students seeking teacher certification must complete a sequence of professional development courses. Admission to the Professional Development Sequence is restricted. Space availability may be a factor in the admission decision, as well as academic performance, completion of prerequisite courses, documented evidence of proficiency in reading and in oral and written communication, and the number of hours the student needs, at the time of application, to complete the program.
For students seeking early childhood through grade six, all-level generic special education, or the Urban Teachers English language arts and reading or social studies certification, admission to the Professional Development Sequence is competitive and there is a specific University grade point average, as well as mandated grades in prerequisite courses required. Additionally, students seeking early childhood through grade six and all-level generic special education certification may only lack one class outside the sequence when they enter the Professional Development Sequence. To progress within the sequence, and to complete the sequence, the student must maintain a specific University grade point average and must earn the appropriate grade in each course in the sequence. Students are encouraged to speak to an advisor in the Office of the Dean, George I. Sánchez Building 2.110 for additional information about these requirements.
For students in other teacher certification programs, requirements for admission to and continuation in the Professional Development Sequence are set by the college in which the student majors.
The General Information Catalog gives information about registration, adding and dropping courses, transfer from one division of the University to another, and auditing a course. The Course Schedule, published before registration each semester and summer session, includes registration instructions, advising locations, and the times, places, and instructors of classes. The Course Schedule and the General Information Catalog are published on the registrar’s website.
