          Admissions



          Students who wish to be admitted into the Early Childhood and Reading Program must first meet the state requirements to attain Candidacy.

          While students may begin their studies at Edinboro University enrolled in the Early Childhood and Reading program, they must earn Candidacy to be formally accepted and continue in the major.

          The process of achieving Candidacy is outlined by the School of Education here.

          Please keep in mind that all students must meet the GPA requirement, pass the necessary state-level testing, obtain all clearances, and pass the required prerequisite courses before Candidacy can be attained and the next steps toward earning your degree can be taken.
