College of Education

Requirements to transfer (as a current NC State student) into specific College of Education majors are listed below.  This includes students who desire to change their major, as well as those who want to add an Education major.

Students must meet the listed “Minimum Requirements” in order to submit an online CODA application to transfer (see Application link to the left).  These requirements must be complete at the time the application is submitted.  All admission is competitive and based on space availability in the specific program.  Meeting the requirements does not guarantee admission to the desired major.
