Student Resources


The Education Advising Community Hub (TEACH) supports students with the necessary resources to navigate through pathways that lead towards entering the field of education. TEACH aims to be a community for students to request information about teaching credential programs and graduate programs in education.

The Elementary Teacher Preparation Plan (E-TPP) is a curricular advising pathway for Child and Adolescent Development and Liberal Studies majors who are interested in becoming Elementary School teachers. E-TPP provides a clear course plan that fulfills the Elementary Subject Matter waiver (ESMR) for students in the pathway.
