Students pursuing a degree in Elementary Education (K-5) must receive initial advisement through the Office of Student Services located in the Clemmer College (321 Warf-Pickel Hall). This office will establish the student's initial file, evaluate any previous coursework for applicability to Teacher Education requirements, and assist the student with initial program planning. (See Advisement to contact this office.)

Students who declare Education as a major will meet with an advisor in the Clemmer College Advisement Services who will help them plan the completion of a core curriculum. As students move into their education major courses, students will be assigned a departmental advisor who will see them through the completion of their program.
