Special Education Major, BS in Education – Interventionist (K-8 and 6-12) and Comprehensive (K-12) Special Education


uTrack Requirements

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students who first entered Fall 2013 or later. uTrack does not apply to transfer students who entered prior to Fall 2015.

Progression Requirements

Progression to the Interventionist and Comprehensive Special Education concentration requires a 2.75 cumulative GPA after a minimum of 30 semester hours of coursework. A Board of Admissions will meet fall, spring, and summer to review applications and conduct interviews with each applicant. Students admitted to the program must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.75 while in the program. Students must earn a grade of C or better in all Teacher Education courses. Students with less than a 2.75 GPA for two consecutive semesters will be dropped from the program. Students who fail to meet the standards for professional conduct during the course of their fieldwork will not be retained in the major.
