Advising/New Students

Prospective Students

The School of Education encourages all undergraduate students who might be interested in our program to make an advising appointment and attend an information session early in their college career. High school seniors are also welcome to attend. Students who have a bachelors degree may choose the TEDU post-baccalaureate (traditional) or MAED graduate (alternate) route to certification. Every student is unique: we will evaluate your transcript and recommend the best path to certification for you. Ocean County Students have a Pilot Program pathway, and all students have opportunities for interstate reciprocity: https://www.nasdtec.net/page/InterstateAgreements


Traditional Students: Request a meeting in person or via Zoom by emailing soe@stockton.edu. Transfer students, preview how your courses will transfer to your Stockton degree. 

Alternate Route students: view this page for more details. 

Current students: see your preceptor, view the information below, or on the FAQs, or on the current students tab, or visit the office in J201.
