ACADEMIC ADVISING NOTES:

-     General Education Natural Science (GN) with a lab is required for the CEAED major.

-     Credits may be reduced if students have approved AP credits or transfer credits to apply to the curriculum requirements.

    - Petitioning for KINES 126 and/or 127 to fulfill the GHA requirement will require 1.5-3 credits of additional electives.

-     The College of Education requires students enrolled in the CEAED PK-4 program to purchase a notebook computer. Refer to

       http://www.ed.psu.edu/educ/educate/educate-at-penn-state for program specifications.

-     Enrollment into Math 200 is controlled. Students must work closely with academic advisor to secure enrollment in this class.

-     Eligibility for entrance to the PK-4 teaching option in the Childhood and Early Adolescent (CEAED) major is based on: (1) formal

       application, (2) completion of specified prerequisites, and (3) cumulative grade point average.

-      Students must participate in a formal Entrance to Major process in a designated selection pool typically during the fourth semester in the Spring.

LIMITATIONS ON SOURCE AND TIME FOR CREDIT ACQUISITION Per Senate policy 83-80.5, the college dean or campus chancellor and program faculty may require up to 24 credits of course work in the major to be taken at the location or in the college or program where the degree is earned. Most majors in Health and Human Development require students to complete up to 24 credits for the major through courses taken at University Park. Courses taken at other Penn State campuses may not be counted toward this 24 credit minimum.
