We are working with the Curiculum and Instruction Department to consolidate all your Teacher Education information on the e-Portfolio system. If you were previously admitted to Teacher Education and do not have an application on file in e-Portfolio, please click here and complete the application. We understand you may have completed your essay during an admittance seminar. If you were previously admitted, and you completed your essay at a seminar, you may upload a short statement indicating you are currently enrolled in your education core classes and the approximate date you attended the seminar. Below is an image of what your profile should look like on ePortfolio.
When you log in, click on the applications tab on the top left side of the screen. You should see an application for Admittance to the Teacher Education Program and the application for your desired block. If you are missing the application for admittance, simply complete the application and submit. Completing the admittance application at this time consolidates all your information on this database and does not affect your previous admittance status. To complete the application click on the Create link on the left and select Admittance to the Teacher Education Program application from the drop-down menu. Again, if you were previously admitted to teacher education and completed the essay at the seminar, you do not need to complete another essay. You may upload a short statement indicating you were previously admitted along with the approximate date you attended the seminar.
