Advising - Secondary Science Teacher Education



All incoming students, including transfer students, should meet with their college advisor and discipline (science) advisor before they register for their first semester classes and every semester thereafter.  These advising sessions will allow students to plan schedules wisely and efficiently.

Students pursuing certification are required to meet with the Science Teacher Certification Coordinator in Faraday 323 at least once per semester. Students should start these advisement sessions as soon as they decide to pursue science teacher certification.
