Changes to Admission to Teacher Education Program

The requirements for admission the Teacher Education Program at Winthrop are currently in transition. Please note the changes below:

  • Students applying to the Teacher Education Program must now view the Admission to Teacher Education video prior to applying. The video provides an overview of the admission requirements and replaces the previous requirement that students attend an in-person information session. Note that you will indicate in the admission system that you have watched the video before you can submit the application. Go here for directions to access the video.
  • The 25-hour youth experience requirement has been removed.
  • The College of Education is also moving from the essay requirement to formal reviews of dispositions and a disposition reflection. Currently there are two systems in place. If you enrolled in EDUC 101 before Fall 2016 you should follow the old system of writing the essay.

Remember to consistently check your Winthrop email for more important announcements and reminders.
