Students may apply to the Hanover College Educator Preparation Program any time after completion of EDU 221 (Education and the American Culture). Elementary Education students definitely want to be admitted in time to declare Elementary Education as their major by the February deadline for Sophomores to declare their major. If they have not they will need to declare another major and change majors after they have been admitted to the Education Program.
TEC has set three "target dates" for applications to be considered - November 1, February 1, and May 1.
The true deadline for applying is the end of the Sophomore year in all but the most extreme of circumstances. Students may possibly be admitted later by appeal, but will likely require an additional semester to complete the Program. All qualified applicants are admitted as there is not a maximum candidate number.
Educator Preparation Program Requirements include:
- Completion of EDU 221
- 2.5 minimum grade point average
- Passing admissions scores as determined by the State of Indiana (SAT minimum 1100/1170 OR ACT minimum 24 OR passing scores on the Indiana CASA exams. http://www.in.nesinc.com/
