The Acceptance Process
All requirements for the A.A.T. degree must be completed before students begin classes
on the Towson campus. Otherwise, the students are not transferring as A.A.T. students
and their transcripts will be evaluated course by course.
Final documents (transcripts) must be turned in to the Elementary Education Office
for acceptance to Level I to be final and complete.
No grades below a 2.0 (which is a grade of C) will be accepted in the AAT degree.
Check all bulletin boards outside Psychology 103/105 at least every two weeks. The
ELED Department posts all information important for Elementary Education pre-majors
and majors on these bulletin boards. It is your responsibility to read and follow
the information posted.
Meet with your assigned advisor each semester to have the Intentional Advising hold
lifted from your registration screen. You CANNOT register for classes until you see
your assigned advisor each semester.
Read the online Towson University catalog section that pertains to the College of Education and the Elementary Education Department.
It is your responsibility to know and follow the information contained in the catalog.
Take and pass Praxis I before you apply for entry into the ELED Major Level I. Make copies of your scores immediately when you receive them online; they will disappear
after 45 days. If you have a combined score of 1100 in Math and Verbal on the SAT
test, or a composite of 24 on the ACT test, you do not need to take Praxis I.
In the semester in which you will complete all the General Education and prerequisite
courses, plan to attend an orientation session for Level I students. Check the bulletin
board for important announcements. All meetings will be held in Hawkins Hall 306.
You must attend one meeting.
Register with Disability Support Services in Administration Building 2nd floor if
you require any accommodations for teaching/learning on the Towson campus or in schools
off campus. No accommodations can be made by instructors unless students are registered
with Disability Support Services at Towson University.
Use only your Towson email account for contacting people at Towson. Read your Towson
emails regularly for important information sent by the department or instructors.
