EC-6 and Mid-Level students major in Education ("Education Intended") and will be advised only by an Education advisor. These students first work on their core and basic content courses before entering the Education program. The program itself is a two-year blocked cohort schedule of courses which only begins in the Fall semester (once a student begins the program, he/she is changed from "Education Intended" to "Interdisciplinary Studies) . You can view our degree plans for more information on required courses.
Secondary and All-Level students major in their content area and should first meet with their content advisor. When they are ready to begin their Education coursework, they should meet with an Education advisor. They will work with both these advisors to ensure they meet all the requirements for their degree and certification. You can read the Secondary/All-Level FAQs for more information.
UTA offers many scholarships, grants, and other forms of financial aid. The College of Education has compiled a list of several opportunities on the Paying for School page. There may be additional options not listed.
Students are also welcome to apply for external, non-UTA scholarships. Outside scholarships include any funding received from sources other than UTA, the state, or the federal government. Awards sent by foundations, civic and religious organizations or companies are common examples of outside scholarships. Students should independently vet scholarships before applying. Be suspicious of scholarships that ask for money in order to apply or receive funds. Details are online.

Compile course syllabi and descriptions of these potential substitutions and let the Education advisor know which courses you'd like to be reviewed.
