Transfer Students

As an elementary teacher, you will teach every subject so you must have a knowledge base in general areas. Therefore, our program is very specific in the general education courses you must take.

To help ensure a smooth transition, please refer to the ESU transfer guides, where you can see transfer guides from Kansas community colleges and universities.
