Specific degree requirements for these undergraduate programs, including copies of the General Education Core requirements specified for education majors, are available in the Office of Student Academic Services, Wist Annex 2-126. For program requirements for the BEd, see the Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies section of the Catalog.

Admission Requirements

Students applying to the elementary program may be admitted with a minimum of 36 credit hours completed by the end of the semester in which they are applying.

Students applying for admission to the bachelor of education program must have achieved upper division status by completing a minimum of 55 credit hours from an accredited college. BS majors in KLS follow specific General Education Core requirements listed on their program sheet. Students must also meet the following criteria:

1. Cumulative GPA of 2.75 at each postsecondary institution attended.

2. For secondary education majors, GPA of 2.75 additionally in the content major. 

3. Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST) or Computer Based Academic Skills Assessments (CBT): minimal state passing scores in reading, writing, and mathematics subtests.

4. Personal interview to assess fluency and intelligibility in oral communication, prior related field experiences, interest and motivation in the field, and suitability to the profession. 

5. Completion of pre-education core requirements (i.e., General Education Core requirements specified for education majors). 

6. Documented current active involvement with school-age children at the grade level of most interest in future teaching. Preferably, students will have had a variety of field experiences with both elementary and secondary level children.

7. Original TB certificate clearance as required by state Department of Education school regulations. Contact the Department of Health for more information. 

8. Liability insurance. 

Admission requirements are subject to change. Call the Office of Student Academic Services for updated information. 

Exceptionally well-qualified students who are off-island during the semester of application may be admitted on a provisional basis pending the satisfactory completion of the personal interview. The provisional restriction must be removed immediately upon arrival at the Manoa campus and no later than the first day of regular registration.

Students who are denied admission to the College of Education may request reconsideration of their application from the assistant dean for student academic services. However, only students who have achieved a minimum overall cumulative GPA of 2.5 and who attain the minimum qualifying passing score on the PPST/CBT may request reconsideration. In addition, students must show strong evidence of future potential in the field and a strong record of recent scholarship. Students from underrepresented groups in the state of Hawai'i may be admitted under affirmative action guidelines. 

During the admission process, applicants may be referred to, reviewed by, or interviewed by appropriate faculty members regarding their qualifications and potential as educators. The behavior of applicants should reflect high ethical and professional standards at all times. Behavior will be evaluated on the basis of past experience and current interaction with college personnel.

Applicants should be aware that admission to the college does not guarantee admission to residency (formerly known as student teaching). Students' progress in teacher education programs will be evaluated at several points throughout the program.
