Admission to the Elementary Education Second Degree Program

Students seeking admission to the Elementary Education Second Degree Program and initial licensure must already hold a BS or BA degree from an accredited institution. Bachelor’s degrees from within the UNC system will waive Liberal Studies requirements. Degrees from out of state institutions will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Students entering the Elementary Education Second Degree program must declare their major and document a 2.75 cumulative GPA at the time of graduation before being admitted. To be admitted, students must meet the requirements for admission to the Teacher Education Program . Students admitted to the second degree program are not required to take the PRAXIS Core exam and will not need to declare a second academic concentration. However, while enrolled in the program, all students must maintain a 2.75 GPA or better to remain in good standing. In addition to courses in the professional education sequence and courses in the major, Second Degree Elementary Education teacher candidates must earn a C or better in the following courses: ENGL 101, ENGL 202. Students whose overall GPA falls below 2.75 will be removed from the program and must improve their GPA and reapply for admission. If a student receives an F in any course in the professional education sequence or major, the student must retake the course when it is offered and earn a grade of C or better. Students who fail any required major course twice are withdrawn from the major. Students who do not successfully complete internship they may be withdrawn from the program and become ineligible for licensure.

Admission to the Professional Education Sequence in Elementary Education Second Degree Program

Students in the Professional Education must be admitted to the Teacher Education Program and are subject to all of the teacher education requirements. EDCI 201 is the only course in the professional education sequence that may be taken before admission to teacher education.

Continuation in the Elementary Education Second Degree Program

To continue in the program, students must meet the continuation requirements of the Teacher Education Program . Any dismissal from a field experience or internship will result in a grade lower than a C and will make the teacher candidate ineligible for licensure.
