Application Process

Students will begin the process to apply for their student teaching year (professional level of the Education Double Degree process) in the fall of the year they are completing their primary degree requirements, Education prerequisites, and content mastery courses. Students ready to apply will start by attending an Application Workshop (see details below) to learn the details about the application process. After attending a workshop, students will be added to a Professional Application Canvas site to submit their application materials (due by February 1st, unless otherwise indicated). If you are planning to apply to the Professional Level of the Education Double Degree for Fall 2022 make an appointment with Niki Weight as soon as possible. Application workshops for students entering the Professional Level in Fall 2023 will be held in Fall 2022.
