Elementary/Special Education

Each semester, the Office of Academic Services hosts an information session for all students interested in the
Education program. Representatives from CSE and the registrar’s office will be available to answer questions.

Students typically enter the program in their second semester of their first year. Students must enter the program by their first semester of the sophomore year. This may require an additional semester and/or summer and intersession courses to be taken.

Students should work closely with their Drew academic adviser as well as their education adviser at CSE to avoid scheduling conflicts and to ensure successful completion of requirements at both institutions.

Students should review their elementary education semester-by-semester plan each semester to ensure proper progress.

Each semester, students should review the course offerings at CSE.

All students must take and pass the PRAXIS teaching exam prior to their 7th semester of enrollment.

There is no additional cost for students enrolled in the Education program if courses are taken in the fall and spring semesters. Students enrolling in summer/intersession courses must pay CSE tuition and fees.

Courses taken in the Education program will count in your Drew GPA.

You must maintain a combined (Drew/CSE) 2.75 GPA in order to remain in the Education program.
