Undergraduate Admissions

Step 1: Be Admitted to IU

Incoming freshmen must be admitted to Indiana University Bloomington through the Office of Admissions.

All undergraduate students are encouraged to apply by the November 1 priority deadline.

Step 2: Get Certified to the School of Education

There are two ways for students to become certified to the School of Education.

  • University Division (UD) Certification
    Students who are not directly admited will begin their studies within the University Division.

    Students should meet with their University Division advisor who can provide guidance in meeting the following certification requirements:

    • Overall IU grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or higher
    • Complete 30 credit hours of college coursework
    • Complete EDUC-G203 with a grade of "C" or higher

Step 3: Apply to Teacher Education Program (TEP)

After completing further program-specific requirements, students may be admitted to the Teacher Education Program (TEP). Admission to TEP is competitive; meeting minimum admission requirements is necessary but not always sufficient for admission. Late applications are considered on a space-available basis.
