Academic Requirements: Students are admitted to the Early Childhood Education program on a competitive and selective basis. Transfer stu- dents must have a minimum cumulative transfer GPA of 3.00. Internal transfers must also have a 3.00 to be consid- ered. Meeting minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to the program. To register for C&I 271, the Early Childhood Education program entry course, students must have achieved: 1. A minimum cumulative and major GPA of 2.50. 2. A minimum of 45 semester hours completed (To begin C&I 271, however, students must have achieved junior standing—a minimum of 60 semester hours completed.) 3. A minimum grade of C in both ENG 101 and COM 110. 4. All sections of State of Illinois Basic Skills Test passed (see description below). Students should contact their Curriculum and Instruction advisors for additional information. Prospective transfer stu- dents will be admitted on a competitive basis to Illinois State University. (See the Admission section of this Undergraduate Catalog .) Advanced registration is strongly recommended.

    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.
