B.S. in Middle Grades Education FAQs

MGE majors are advised in the Teacher Education Advisement Center (TEAC), which is housed in Education Student Services, KH 1314. Ms. Nancy Gillis advises all MGE admitted students. Ms. Gillis along with Ms. Rachel Blase and Ms. Susan Roberts advise MGE-Interest students.
Candidates can schedule advisement appointments online here: https://booknow.appointment-plus.com/4rz15062/
Candidates who have completed less than 30 credit hours must meet with their advisor each semester to have the advisement hold removed before registering for courses for the next semester. MGE majors are also required to meet with their advisor before submitting their applications for admission to the MGE Program and to Yearlong Clinical Experience. Even when not required, it's a good idea to meet with the MGE advisor at least once each semester to discuss course prerequisites, scheduling for the next semester, upcoming deadlines, and possible program changes.
