Curriculum in Elementary Education
Due to high demand, the elementary education major has a restricted enrollment. A total of 75 elementary education applicants are admitted each year with admission decisions occurring in fall and spring. Applications are considered only if students have met all criteria noted in the Admission to Teacher Education. Fall semester 25 applicants are accepted and begin a cohort sequence the following spring semester; spring semester 50 applicants are accepted and begin a cohort sequence the following fall semester. Rankings for elementary education applicants are determined by the AU Core GPA and a professional interview which includes a review of a resume, a writing sample, and a face-to-face interview.
