How to Apply
Welcome and thank you for your interest in applying to the Teacher Education Program (TEP) at UCSB. The following links provide all the necessary information to guide you through the application process. You must read the Application Handbook for the credential subject area you are interested in applying to before starting your online E-App, as our many requirements (such as what to write for the Admission Essays) are very unique to the TEP. You will be required to upload all application materials to the online E-App electronically. Please follow the instructions carefully and let the handbooks be your guide.
Dates are at the Information Meetings webpage.
Supplemental Program Applications:
Dates will be available in fall quarter 2013 at the Screening Interviews webpage.
Helpful E-App Screenshots:
We recommend applicants attend an Information Meeting as soon as possible, as it may take one year to complete all of the admission requirements to the program.
If you can't attend an Information Meeting, please contact the TEP office and the Pre-Professional Coordinator with your questions:

Applicants that have started their Online E-App can send techincal questions about the E-App to the GGSE Student Affairs Office (SAO) as a message by utilizing the envelope icon in the top right corner of the E-App. Their staff will answer messages as soon as possible. SAO prioritizes questions about the E-App sent via the E-App message system over E-App questions sent via phone or personal e-mail correspondence.
