NOTE: The PreK-4 program started fall 2009 with the incoming freshman class, and the class of 2013 will be the first graduates of this program. The PreK-4 program will be phased in over the next 3 years. Students in this program must have an advisor in the Education Department. Teacher certification programs are subject to changes in state and federal regulations. Formal acceptance to a certification program may include requirements over and above those of the college. Title II of the Higher Education Act enacted in 1998 requires that institutions publicize the pass-rate of PRAXIS tests taken by students who complete a certification program. See the Education Department's Student Handbook and website www.juniata.edu/education for specific information and current certification requirements. Title II information is available from the Education Department Certification Officer or the Dean of Enrollment.

NOTE: It is imperative that students work closely with their advisors to meet all current certification requirements. All students are required to take six credits of English composition (or equivalent) and literature (or the equivalent) and two college level mathematics courses (or the equivalent) prior to being admitted to a certification program. See Section I of the Education Department Student Handbook for explanation of all certification requirements.
