Initial Contact with Student Services
Until you are declared as an education major, advising will officially take place in Academic Counseling and Advisement (siue.edu/advising). If you have any questions before you are declared, you are welcome to e-mail or schedule an appointment with an Student Services advisor. Registration of general education courses will occur with an advisor in Academic Advising. Once admitted to SIUE, you will receive an identification number and PIN so you may register online for courses.
Students must have met the following requirements in order to declare.
Please note: Students must maintain a minimum 2.5 cumulative SIUE and 2.5 combined GPA (all post-secondary institutions) while completing all course work with a minimum grade of C in order to remain an Education major.
Once you have declared your major, you will register for your classes with your Student Services advisor. Each student will receive a Program Sheet and it is the student’s responsibility to keep the Program Sheet updated and bring it to each advising appointment.
Declared majors who are not admitted into the Special Education program may take the following classes: EPFR 315, EPFR 320, SPPA 290 and their Interdisciplinary Studies (IS) class. Students must be a junior to register for an IS class.
If you were not admitted to a cohort, you may re-apply for the next cohort program. Applications are due the first Monday in March for a fall cohort; or the first Monday in October for a spring cohort.
Students must maintain at least a 3.0 GPA and have a C or higher in their special education and professional education classes to remain in the program. If a student falls to get a C their courses or their professional GPA drops below 3.0, the student must reapply to the program. If accepted, the student must establish a plan with Faculty to enter a new cohort.
