National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) Accredited

Enrollment in all teacher education programs follows the guidelines for "Admission to Teacher Education Programs" found in the catalog. Applicants who do not yet meet all admissions criteria should consult with the department.

The B.S. program in mathematics with adolescent certification (5–6 extension) is directed to a career goal of teaching. This program includes the course requirements leading to New York State initial certification to teach mathematics in grades 5–12.

SUNY has a standard admissions requirement of a 3.0 GPA for entry into an educator preparation program at the undergraduate or graduate level or a rank in the top 30th percentile of the high school class for entry into an undergraduate educator preparation program as a first-year student.

For first-year students, four years of college preparatory mathematics is recommended; top 30th percentile or an 85% high school average; submission of ACT or SAT score.

Transfer students with a 3.0 GPA from either their last college or the combined average of all previous colleges, whichever is higher, will be admitted directly into Mathematics Education (BS-NS MTS).

Students who do not meet admissions requirements will be admitted into the Mathematics (BA-NS MAT) major, but will be tagged with the code MATE, Mathematics with an Interest in Education.
