Teacher Education


Undergraduate Students

All teacher education students are admitted to Auburn University and the College of Education with a pre-teacher education status.  Prospective transfer students should contact an academic advisor in their intended program area before transferring to Auburn University to determine if teacher education admission requirements can be completed prior to enrollment.

Successful completion of an undergraduate teacher education program involves four steps:

  1. Admission to Teacher Education
  2. Admission to Clinical Residency
  3. Graduation
  4. Recommendation for Teacher Certification

Students will meet with their academic advisor each term to review progress toward professional program completion.  For more information about Teacher Education, refer to the Auburn Bulletin.
