Admission to Teacher Education Programs


Before Hunter students can declare a School of Education major or minor, they must apply to the School of Education and be accepted. The School of Education application is open to current Hunter students throughout the year, and can be accessed online through the School of Education website. Students interested in an Education program should apply as early as is possible in the semester prior to the one in which they plan to enroll. Transfer students should seek advisement about applying to the School of Education as soon as they have been admitted to Hunter. Transfer students who have a GPA of at least 3.3 may apply to start an Education program in their first term at Hunter.

All applicants must complete an on-site writing test to assess written English skills, as well as participate in a group interview with other students and School of Education faculty members.  Accepted students will declare both an appropriate major in the School of Arts & Sciences, and a major or minor in the School of Education.  

Undergraduate teacher education programs require a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0. The School of Education does not accept nondegree or second-degree students. Meeting minimum admission requirements does not guarantee entry into the program.
