** General Criteria for Entry into the Education Sequences**Students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above to enroll in introductory (foundations) education courses (EDS 201, EDS 202). Students whose GPAs are below 3.0 but above 2.9 may appeal for special permission to enroll in an introductory foundations course. All students apply for admission to an educational sequence while enrolled in one of the 200-level foundations courses listed above. Applicants must have already taken the NYSTCE Academic Literacy and Skills Test (ALST). Students who are denied admission to the an educational sequence may appeal the decision. Instructions for the appeal processes, including deadlines, are available in the School of Education office located in Building 3S, Room 208.

**Students must develop and maintain a program portfolio as outlined in the program handbook. Students must earn a C+ or above in each education class. Students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 throughout the program.**

Criteria for Continuing in the Educational Sequences

Criteria for Continuing in the Educational Sequences

**Chemistry Advisory**

One-year of high school chemistry is required prior to entry into CHM 141 and CHM 121. If you have not completed one-year of high school chemistry you will be required to complete CHM 100 and CHM 101 prior to registering for CHM 141 and CHM 121.

**Mathematics Minimum Grade Requirement**

A grade of C or above is required in MTH 230, MTH 231, and MTH 232. Students will be allowed to repeat courses, if necessary.

**Mathematics Placement**

Depending on mathematics placement, some students may have to complete MTH 30, and/or MTH 35 and/or MTH 123, and/or MTH 130 prior to enrolling in MTH 230/229 or MTH 231/229.

**Prerequisite Advisory**

EDS 202 has a prerequisite of three credits in psychology. PSY 100, which also satisfies the Individual and Society general education requirement, is strongly recommended.

**NYS Certification Requirement**

EDP 220 is a requirement for NYS Certification and may also be used to satisfy the social science general education requirement. Students are encouraged to take this course prior to graduation.
