To be admitted directly into a teacher education program and Community Health, it is required that new freshmen have a 2.75 high school GPA and 16 units of college preparatory curriculum or a 21 ACT or 980 SAT score. Students who do not meet the GPA requirements of their intended major may enroll as pre-majors for selected programs or EHHS General until which time they have the required 2.75 GPA.

Students seeking admission to this program must meet all professional requirements for admission to advanced study. A maximum of 100 students will be admitted to this program each academic year. A minimum ACT composite score of 21 (980 SAT combined critical reading and math score) OR a 2.75 cumulative high school grade point average and all 16 of the recommended college preparatory units is required.Students seeking admission to this program must meet all professional requirements for admission to advanced study and have a minimum cumulative 2.75 GPA in all previous undergraduate coursework.
