This program will have a one-time pilot for Spring 2014 of ten students and after that enrollment will be for every fall semester beginning Fall 2014.

Students must have a 2.7 GPA, passed Praxis 1, completed all undergraduate requirements; ( 6 credits in English, Math, Natural Science, 3 credits in US History , Introductory Psychology or Sociology course, Fine Arts or Foreign Language and 3 credits in Child Development)

In addition students must complete SHE 203 prior to beginning the program.
