Assistant Professors: Blum, O’Brian, Shelden. General Department Information Admission to Special Education Programs : The undergraduate Special Education program is a selective admission program with a limited number of students admitted to each of the sequences. Students seek- ing admission to the Special Education program must be admitted to a sequence, although freshmen who are unsure of their sequence preference may be admitted to General Special Education for a limited time. All Special Education undergraduates must have declared their sequence prior to Admission to Professional Studies. An overall GPA of 2.50 is required for retention in all Special Education programs. Changes in major or sequence will be approved only if the student meets established program admission requirements and if there are openings in the sequence the student desires to enter. Students seeking to change their major to Special Education should follow the procedures described in this Undergraduate Catalog . New Transfer and Internal Transfer Admission Requirements: Students transferring from other schools or from other majors within the University must have a cumulative GPA of 2.70. Department advisors can provide information regarding additional requirements for transfer into a special education major. Standards for Progress in the Major A minimum GPA of 2.50 is required both overall and in major coursework for retention in all Special Education pro- grams. Candidates must meet requirements for Admission to Professional Studies and Admission to Student Teaching to advance to experiences with these prerequisites. Professional Requirements Applicable to All Special Education Programs : In addition to meeting University requirements for graduation and Admission to Professional Studies requirements, all students in Special Education must suc- cessfully complete: 1) 27-hour core of courses, which includes the knowledge standards central to the profession of special education. These courses include: SED 101, 201, 202, 203, 204, 373; C&I 208; PSY 215; and EAF 228, or 231 or 235. (All of these courses must be completed with a grade of C or better.) 2) Sequence-specified course and experience requirements (see below) with minimum cumulative and major grade point averages of 2.50. 3) Pre-student teaching experiences designed to meet professional performance standards. These experi- ences include successful completion of a minimum of 7 semester hours through enrollment in appropri- ate sections of SED 245 (see sequence-specific requirements). Additional teaching or related experi- ences may be included as a part of core or specific sequence requirements or in remedial experiences. Performance evaluations in each of these experiences must recommend that the student advance to the next level of experience prior to doing so. Students are responsible for housing arrangements and trans- portation to clinical sites.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
