Teacher Education and Higher Education

Current Students

While working with university teacher educator programs and school district offices, our graduates become teachers, improve their current teaching practice, and work in colleges or universities as instructors or administrators. It is our hope that you will leave this program with a strong sense of self, confident in your ability to lead in a field that greatly needs excellent, caring, and innovative leaders.

We encourage our students to speak with our academic advisors in the Office of Student Success (OSS) within the School of Education. This office provides students with clear and accurate information regarding University/School of Education/state licensure policies, procedures, and services, offer recommendations and strategies for academic success, and refer students to appropriate campus offices and resources.

Interested in applying to graduate school?

Applications to all graduate programs are made through the UNC Greensboro Graduate School. The Graduate School website will provide prospective students with a wealth of information about the application process.

No matter if you’re interested in our Teacher Education programs, Higher Education programs, or our Professional Certificates and Licensure programs, in the Department of Teacher Education and Higher Education (TEHE), we are ready to guide you through the process and help you make an informed decision about your education. 

Financial Support

Our goal is for every student in the School of Education (SOE) to be able to focus on their studies and not on student debt. A variety of financial aid is available to our students, including scholarships based on academic merit and financial need. We invite you to explore the many scholarship opportunities offered in the School of Education. 

All students should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for any scholarship in which financial need is a requirement of the scholarship.

Students needing other financial aid should complete the forms obtained through the Financial Aid Office. You may contact the Financial Aid Office at 336.334.5702 or email: finaid@uncg.edu.
