Applying to the Teacher Education Program
Students who wish to enter one of the Teacher Education Programs must meet all admissions requirements including the completion of a formal application.
Because of the sequencing of courses and because of pre-requisites for admission, a student should review the Degree Checklist and consult with an education department advisor as soon as he or she enrolls at Truett.
Once a student is admitted to the Teacher Education Program, that student will be assigned to a cohort with a designated course schedule and to an education department advisor. The education faculty monitors and reviews the progress of each student each semester. The faculty reserves the right to remove any student from the Teacher Education Program for failing to meet established criteria and policies in effect at the time of admission and/or demonstrating conduct that has been judged unethical or illegal based on the Truett-McConnell Student Handbook or the Code of Ethics of the Georgia Professional Standards Commission.
Students should apply to the Teacher Education Program after they have completed 40 hours of academic coursework. Please note: Admission to Truett-McConnell College does not guarantee admission to the Teacher Education Program.
Application packets for the following academic year are due February 1 to Room 111 Holcomb Education Building. Interviews may be conducted. Qualified applicants will be notified prior to the spring advisement period for fall registration.
Late applications (submitted after February 1) from current Truett-McConnell students and from transfer students are accepted and considered until the cohort is filled (20 students).
Transfer students who wish to apply for admission to Teacher Education must first apply for admission to the college, and admission to the college does not guarantee admission to Teacher Education.
