Transfer Students

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

To help ensure a smooth transition, you will need to follow an ESU transfer guide. Please refer to the ESU transfer guides located at the university's Transcript Analyst web page. Here you can see transfer guides from Kansas community colleges and universities.
