The School of Education Advising Center in 210 Joseph R. Pearson Hall works with undergraduate students before and after they are admitted to the teacher education and health, sport, and exercise science programs. Appointments are available year-round on weekdays. Advisors are also available in Robinson Center for admitted athletic training, exercise science, and sport management students.

Prospective students who are interested in entering School of Education programs may make individual appointments with an advisor. They should also sign up for a group advising session at least once a semester to check their progress and to make sure they are on track for applying to the School of Education.

Transfer students should contact the School of Education advising center before transferring to KU to (1) insure that they are eligible for admission to the School of Education and (2) are able to complete an undergraduate program in a timely manner. Admission to KU, even as a pre-Education student, does not guarantee admission to the School of Education. All admission requirements for School of Education programs, including minimum grade point averages, must be completed.

Admitted Education students will be assigned a specific advisor who they will work with throughout their undergraduate career. Admitted students are strongly encouraged to meet with their advisor each semester to help ensure the student is on track for graduating.

Frequently asked questions will answer many of the questions that we frequently receive from our undergraduate students.
