Undergraduate Admission Requirements

To be admitted to any teacher education program, applicants must meet the requirements below. Questions should be addressed to the director of the appropriate teacher education program.

  • Applicants must have earned a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0. Rarely, and at the discretion of the program director, students who have a grade point average lower than 3.0 but higher than 2.75 may be provisionally admitted, contingent upon their willingness to undertake remedial work.
  • Transfer students must have earned at least a 3.0 at the institution from which they are transferring. Exceptions are at the discretion of the program director. If students have completed more than 12 credits at Stony Brook, admission  decisions will also consider their Stony Brook grade point average.
  • Each teacher education program may require students to complete specific courses (with a minimum grade) to qualify for admission.
  • Applicants must submit a well-written 500-750 word essay based on concepts identified in the Themes & Pathways articulated in the D-TALE conceptual framework. Additional instructions regarding admissions essay content can be found in the D-TALE Application Form.
