Transfer Students and Credits

Transfer students wishing to be endorsed for teaching and who meet the requirements for admission into the teacher education program must complete requirements for their chosen teaching major (field or subject areas) in harmony with the pertinent "approved program" on file.

The teacher education program may selectively accept lower division transfer credit from regionally accredited two-year institutions of higher education; credit from regionally accredited four-year institutions also may be accepted.

A transferring student who expects to be recommended for certification must earn a minimum of 30 semester hours of credit at Union College, 20 for secondary and 24 for elementary shall be in Education. Exceptions to this policy may be made by action of the Teacher Preparation Committee.
