Interdisciplinary Studies Degree Programs –

Elementary and Middle Level Teacher Certification
Articulation Agreement for 2016 Catalog Year

(currently under update)

ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS:

Prior to beginning educatation course work you must meet all the following requirements:

1)  Have a 2.75 overall GPA and 2.75 GPA in your major.  This includes all transfer and SHSU courses.

2)  Have a grade of "C" or better in all coursework.

For additional and the most up-to-date  information on certification, please see the College of Education home page at http://www.shsu.edu/academics/education/.  To comply with state mandated certification requirements in minimum time at minimum cost there are "no electives courses" in the curriculum. These changes serve to expand core courses in science that will transfer from community colleges.

To minimize cost and time while meeting certification requirements consider transferring a maximum of 48 hours.  The proper goal for most transfer students should be to maximize transfer courses in the major rather than seeking to be core complete at the college or university.  Students not completing the associate degree are encouraged to seek the associate degree as part of the bachelor degree utilizing SHSU's reverse transfer program with Texas colleges.

Degree plan check sheets for each of the programs are shown below for planning purposes. Each one reflects Texas Common Course numbers for the core courses. Transfer students should begin working with a SHSU advisor early in their community college studies to discuss joint admission and transfer plans.

There are three elementary certification programs offered at SHSU:

In addition, three middle-level programs are offered at SHSU

And for students not seeking Texas Teacher Certification, who are preparing to work in child care, Head Start, or social service agencies, the Early Childhood Education – Non Certification program is offered at SHSU.

Candidates who wish to teach in high school settings will major in the teaching field and minor in Secondary Education. A variety of teaching field majors are offered by the College of Sciences, the College of Fine Arts and Mass Communication, and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences. Please refer to the undergraduate catalog in the appropriate department for information about secondary teaching. The following link provides a list of the teaching fields and the area of study: http://www.shsu.edu/catalog/coed.html#academicstudies

Candidates for teaching, at any level, are required to meet state mandated entry criteria to be accepted in a SHSU Educator Preparation Program. Further information about those requirements are detailed on the SHSU Educator Preparation Services website at the following link http://www.shsu.edu/~edu_edprep/admission/crit.html

*     Courses required in some 8-12 teaching fields. Refer to Undergraduate Catalog for your major.
**     Secondary Teaching Notes: Students should seek advisement to determine whether they are seeking a B.S or B.A.  degree. The B. A. programs require 8 hours of science courses, Speech, Philosophy and 14 hours of Foreign Language. The B. S. programs require 16 hours of science courses,
***     KIN 215 addresses  EC-6 Physical Education standards and is required for any EC-6 or 4-8 program. Activity courses do not apply to the EC-6 degree plans. 

Secondary Teaching candidates seeking an AAT degree should complete core coursework at the community college, then complete the requirement for 12 hours of teaching field content at SHSU.  For community colleges who permit this arrangement, SHSU will ” reverse transfer” those hours to reflect completion of the AAT degree at the originating institution.


A maximum of 66 credit hours (excluding kinesiology) may be transferred from a community college to Sam Houston State University. Students should carefully select courses to complete the associate degree while minimizing the number of hours that might exceed the 66 hour cap for transfer credit.

Every effort has been made to insure the accuracy of this guideline. In the event of a discrepancy between this guide and catalogue of a participating institution, the catalogue is always the primary source.

Notes:

SHSU catalogue courses with 3000 and 4000 level numbers are considered as upper division and must be completed at SHSU. Credit may not be transferred from a community college for upper division courses.

Disclaimer: All education programs are subject to change by the legislature (i.e. The State Board of Educator Certification and The Higher Education Coordinating Board). All schools must adopt these standards at the time they are published.

Applications for admission to SHSU may be obtained online at https://www.applytexas.org/adappc/commonapp.wbx or by calling Undergraduate Admissions at (936) 294-1828. Extensive information is also available on the SHSU web site at http://www.shsu.edu/. Please view http://www.shsu.edu/~edu_www/ for a more detailed listing of degree options within the College of Education and Applied Science including contact information.

Texas Grant
Texas residents who have graduated from high school within the past 16 months with the Recommended or Distinguished curriculum, or received your first Associate's Degree within the past 12 months may qualify for the Towards Excellence, & Success (TEXAS) Grant, a state financial aid program. Please review the basic qualifications. If you believe you qualify, contact your respective community college or university financial aid office. The financial aid office at SHSU may be contacted at (936) 294-1724 or at http://www.shsu.edu/~fao_www/. Additional information may be found at http://www.collegefortexans.com.
