CURRENT STUDENTS: We’re offering many early childhood courses this spring that may be of interest to you. Spring semester officially begins on Jan. 12th, but registration is currently open. In others words, if you’re looking to obtain a seat in class, now is the time to register – before classes fill! You can find the entire list of offerings and schedules HERE.
NEW STUDENTS: Are you considering our Early Childhood program? Wonderful! You’ll want to begin HERE and also contact an early childhood advisor (see below) for registration guidance and access to your program plan. As a tip for spring semester, begin with any developmental courses you may need (English/Math) depending on your Accuplacer assessment results. Otherwise, take your ENGL requirement and other Gen. Eds. You’ll want to take 1100, 1210, and 1220 FALL SEMESTER. Doing it in this sequence will get you on the best track for completion.
