All students who are seeking admission to a certifiable degree program must apply and be admitted to the Education Division. Application to the Education Division and admission to the division are two separate events. The application process requires the submission of considerable documentation (see below) along with a completed application form and three personal recommendations. We encourage you to apply as soon as you are ready to meet all of the admission requirements detailed below. To ensure the completion of all major and minor program requirements prior to student teaching, students must be eligible for and complete the application process to the Education Division at least two years before registering for student teaching and one year before applying for admission to student teaching. Decisions on admission to the Education Division are made by formal vote of the faculty members of the division. Completed applications for admission are brought to one of the regularly scheduled meetings of the division and are reviewed before an admission vote is taken. The decision of the division is communicated, in writing, to the student immediately after the meeting at which the vote is taken and the decision is made.
Successful application to the Lakeland University Education Division is contingent upon the following requirements:
Please note: The student is responsible for the submission of this set of academic credentials as part of the Education Division application process.
Upon submission of all of the above documentation of eligibility for admission, you may be notified of an interview. At these interviews, faculty members of the Education Division will be present. You may be required to present a long-range plan, which will demonstrate to us how you plan to successfully complete your education program. Part of that long-range plan must be three (3) goals, based on the Standards for Teacher Licensure, which you want to accomplish prior to your becoming a certified teacher. When all of the above requirements have been completed, your file will be formally presented to the division of education. The faculty of the division will officially accept or deny each application. Reasons for denying an application might include, but are not limited to, misconduct during your work at Lakeland University; lack of demonstrated competence in EDU 100 - Introduction to Education, EDU 230 - Educational Psychology or other preliminary courses; or inadequate performance in the interview. You may be given the opportunity to re-do required competencies and/or re-interview.
After acceptance into the division, you will be asked to complete the appropriate paperwork assigning you to a permanent Education Division adviser or co-advisor. Your division adviser will assist you, along with your major/minor adviser, with completing your remaining coursework requirements at Lakeland University. You will be notified of the name of your division adviser, and you will need to complete a change of advisor form from the registrar's office.
In accord with Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction chapter PI 34.14,3(b), Lakeland University provides an appeal process for students who have been denied admission to the Education Division. The steps in that process are outlined below.
