For those interested in the Multiple Subject Credential programs attendance at an information meeting is mandatory.  

These meetings are designed to be informative and provide a comprehensive overview of the programs. It is very important that you attend one of these meetings as we will be sharing a packet of documents and materials you will need for application admission to the program. There will be time for you to ask questions and meet your fellow future teachers.

Virtual Advising Available! Email us at to schedule an appointment or click virtual meeting you would like to attend. If you cannot attend an information meeting, you may request a one-on-one meeting with the program admission advisor.
