The Office of Student Services provides support to UF students in the following areas: undergraduate academic advising for Education majors and minors, Florida educator certification advising, scholarship information, student organization advising, and student teaching placement.
Current and prospective students may seek academic advice about College of Education undergraduate majors (ProTeach Unified Elementary Education and ProTeach Unified Early Childhood Education) and minors (Disabilities in Society, Educational Studies, Florida Teaching, and UFTeach Mathematics and Science Teaching) in the Office of Student Services. Applications for admission to the majors and applications to add the minors are processed in this office.
Student Services coordinates the placement of student teachers and school counselors from all teacher education programs at UF, including programs from the colleges of Agricultural and Life Sciences and Fine Arts. Application materials are processed, and contacts with public school districts in Florida are made and monitored for student teaching/internship completion.
At the end of each term, candidates for the Bachelor of Arts in Education are presented to the faculty and the dean for approval with any distinguishing honors. Student Services staff are responsible for coordinating award of the BAE, and verification of completion of minors offered by the College.
The Assistant Dean for Student Affairs in the Office of Student Services is the UF teacher certification officer. At the direction of the Assistant Dean, the University Registrar places the “NCATE and State-approved Program” statement on the transcripts of graduates who have met program requirements in the fields for which the College prepares teachers, school guidance counselors, school psychologists, and graduates from the affiliated colleges of Agricultural and Life Sciences, and Fine Arts.
Student Services coordinates the COE scholarship application process. Potential scholarship applicants may seek information about College scholarships and apply for scholarships in Student Services.
