COE Student Resources
Below are a list of supporting resources the College of Education advising team has worked to gather for our education students.
A.S.T. Transfer Pathway for Elementary & Early Childhood
A.S.T. Student Handbook
VERY IMPORTANT! Download the above A.S.T. Student Handbook, which serves as the essential and comprehensive guide for all students planning to transfer to MTSU following the Associates in Teaching (A.S.T.) transfer pathways from one of our community college partners.
After reviewing the handbook, you can find major-specific documents below to help ensure you understand your unique transfer pathway. Incoming students are required to sign up for CUSTOMS, the new student orientations prior to their starting term.
Early Childhood Education
If you are able to follow the A.S.T. pathway, this A.S.T. Course Map for Elementary Education will be the remainder of your degree pathway at MTSU.
If unable to earn your A.S.T., this Non-A.S..T. Course Map for Elementary will be your new degree pathway at MTSU.
