In addition to meeting requirements for admission established by the Graduate School, applicants must meet content requirements and pass two appropriate state mandated content examinations: Middle School English Language Arts, Middle School Mathematics, Middle School Science, Middle School Social Studies. Contact the college’s Office of Student Services to learn more about the exams. Candidates are required to present an original score report to the College of Education and Human Services for verification and notification to the Graduate School. Do not send score reports to the Graduate School.
Other admission criteria includes: submission of a program application and submission of a field experience application. The program application is a separate application from the Graduate School application. The accrediting agency for teacher education requires a separate consideration of every candidate seeking to be a teacher.
The program application includes a self-assessment, content verification, references, and a checklist regarding conviction of certain crimes (which may prevent the candidate from being licensed as a teacher by the state of Ohio). The faculty reserves the right to conduct an admission interview. Please visit with a Teacher Licensure Advisor to learn the details of the admissions process to the Middle Childhood Education program.
