    For the freshman and sophomore years, or until requirements for admission to teacher education have been satisfied, students in the College of Education will enroll in the appropriate pre-professional curriculum: elementary (EDPPE) or secondary (EDPPS). These students are advised by a College of Education pre-professional advisor in 13 Bluemont Hall concerning the courses essential for entry into the teacher education program.

    Students transferring to K-State after earning credit at another institution will be enrolled in a pre-professional program until it has been determined that requirements for admission to teacher education have been satisfied. Students attending community colleges are encouraged to plan their degree programs in a four-year sequence. The College of Education invites students to seek advice from the Center for Student and Professional Services in 13 Bluemont Hall concerning course selections.
