Current undergraduate students at UT Austin who would like to transfer into the College of Education are required to attend an internal transfer information session before they can meet with an Academic Advisor. Students with less than 45 semester hours who are interested in changing to one of the Applied Learning and Development majors may transfer into the College of Education at any time. Students with 45 or more semester hours must have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA to transfer into the College of Education.
There are no restrictions or extra application requirements for this major. Visit the declaring this major section to learn how to change your major. Once a student is in the College of Education, there is an internal application for the final three semesters of the major (the Professional Development Sequence, or "PDS"). Admission to the PDS requires a minimum 2.5 UT grade point average and completion of required prerequisite coursework. View additional information at Early Childhood to 6th grade certification.
