Early Childhood Education Advising
If you are interested in applying, please contact Lynda Pullen at email@example.com for an appointment to learn more about our admissions process. Once you have been admitted to the program, you will be assigned a faculty advisor who will help you plan your program of study.
- Please bring your ECE program planning guide with you to each advising meeting. Most advising sessions will now occur through Google Hangout so be prepared to share your program of study through a Google hangout share screen feature.
- All substitutions for any course need to be approved by the advisor before the student takes the course. Please do so through email communications so that you have a record of the advisor’s consent. As well, when you are ready to graduate and fill in your graduation paperwork for the Graduate Studies Office, they will trigger a DARS audit of your program of study. If you have made substitutions, they will notify the department assistant with the DARS report who will then contact your advisor. Your advisor will create the list of substitutions for the Graduate Studies office and submit for a DARS update to reflect your program of study with substitutions and allow you to proceed to graduation.
- All transfer courses need to be taken for a letter grade from an accredited university at the graduate level. Use the GO-21 for pre-admission and transfer credits found at the Graduate Studies Website.
- Be aware that there is a 6-credit limit for PSU 800 level classes or equivalent professional development courses from other institutions, with the exception of courses numbered 808, which will not count towards any degree.
