Who are Center for Urban Education Students?

A picture of Center students (numbering over 200) would show a rich variety of people. It would include recent high school graduates as well as more mature individuals who have been away from school for quite some time. They want to work with children right away and be involved in learning how to be the best teacher they can be.

Admission Requirements

You must meet the UNC undergraduate admission requirements for the academic year for which you are applying. See the UNC Catalog for current admission requirements.

Transferring in Previous College Credit

Transferrable college credit may shorten the time you spend in academic courses at the Denver Center. Courses with a grade of C- or higher from regionally-accredited institutions that are not developmental transfer to UNC.

  • Review process: official transcripts are reviewed by both the UNC Registrar and the academic program. Transfer students are advised on placement in the program following this Transfer Evaluation. See more details about the UNC Transfer Evaluation.
  • For those students who have taken or are taking supporting courses at a Colorado public two-year institution, see the Transfer Guide.

Your Program Coordinator can advise you on how transferred courses will impact your required coursework each term. Transferred credit won't impact the classroom apprenticeship experience requirements, which are a critical portion of your preparation in this program.
