Application Deadline for the Teacher Education Program
Our Teacher Education program has a preferred* deadline of February 1st for fall admission and November 1st for spring admission. After the preferred deadline has passed, admission is rolling. (Rolling admission only applies to domestic students)

*Submitting your application by the preferred deadline ensures application review in a timely manner enabling you to have more time to plan for the beginning of the semester, obtain financial aid in a timely manner and register for courses quickly before they are at capacity and perhaps even get a head start and take classes in the summer.
