All Education students must apply to the College of Education and be accepted before they are able to take courses in the major.


The undergraduate advising department in the College of Education welcomes our education majors. The department consists of three experienced advisors who approach students with their best interest in mind. Together as a team with the student, advisors will support and guide students to a successful graduation in a timely manner. This is in keeping with the ‘Soar in 4’ initiative.

The College of Education offers students’ academic advising, test preparation for state mandated exams, and personal support.  The College of Education advisors care for each, and every, student, and are committed to assuring each student experiences a self-confident progressive path towards a successful graduation. Also, advisors are able to refer students to other university resources in an effort to support the students’ overall well-being and academic achievement. 

The advisors work pro-actively with each student and are available throughout the calendar year. This provides students with support and encouragement during their time as an education major. We advise that you schedule an appointment with your advisor at least once a semester.  


University Advising Services is committed to assisting our students with academic advisement! In the current health climate, we would like to remind you that all appointments will be conducted remotely via telephone, email or virtual (when possible). Please use the “Additional Information” section when making your appointment to provide your phone number, Zoom or Microsoft Teams link. Your advisor will contact you using the information you provide (e.g. 239-xxx-xxxx, Zoom link, Teams link  ).


You may also schedule an appointment or speak with your advisor by contacting them directly.
