The more accurate your own record is, the easier it will be to complete advisement and enrollment procedures. Take this handbook with you each time you see your advisor.

Some Important Suggestions
Acquaint yourself with the features of the teacher education program. Be aware of application deadlines, required tests, and other policies and procedures. Plan a tentative program. See your advisor at a time other than pre-registration for a more relaxed planning session.
Become active on campus. Attend programs sponsored in the College of Education by Kansas National Education Association-Student Program, Council for Exceptional Children, College of Education Ambassadors, Education Council, Education Symposium, Open House, or other organizations. Consider joining these organizations. Attend lectures and other activities that take place on campus.
Take advantage of opportunities to work with children and young people through extracurricular activities (e.g., summer camps, baby-sitting, Sunday school teaching) and/or additional formal field experiences.
Accept the responsibility of being an active member of the university community and enjoy the satisfaction of being involved in your college experience.
