Advisement

Undergraduate Program in Early Childhood Education

Students interested in the Early Childhood program major in Science, Letters and Society (SLS).  Through a separate process, students are admitted to the Education program.  As a result, students in this program have three sources for advisement:

1) An Education faculty advisor assigned to each cohort of entering students;
2) The School of Education Director of Program Administration; and
3) Faculty and staff in the SLS office.  Each of these advisors offers the following areas of expertise:

Education Faculty Advisor:

  • Advises students about professional aspirations, career choices, intellectual growth, and unique opportunities. 
  • Advises students about Education course content, academic and professional relationships, and other academic issues that arise.
  • Advises students who are in academic difficulty (i.e., whose GPAs have fallen below minimum standards) in their Education courses.
  • Advise students who seek an academic waiver for an Education requirement of any kind.
