Each year, the School of Educational Studies hosts application and advising workshops to help students prepare their applications to the Elementary Education Option or Elementary Education Post-Baccalaureate. These workshops also include Winter Quarter academic advising.

  1. Register for a required Elementary Education Certification application workshop.
  2. Attend workshop to learn more about SES's Elementary Education programs; application requirements for the Elementary Education Option and Elementary Education Post-Baccalaureate; and receive Winter Quarter academic advising.
  3. If needed, attend virtual drop-in advising sessions held in November.

Students in Other Majors

SES advisors are happy to meet with students interested in out teacher certification programs or our M.Ed. Pre-major students should meet with their pre-major advisor.

Prospective SES Students

Prospective undergraduate or teacher certification students not yet attending UW Bothell should email to request support from a UWB Admissions Advisor. 

Advising & COVID-19

SES requests that students follow all University guidelines and requirements prior to attending in-person appointments. UW guidelines include:

  • Wearing a mask indoors regardless of vaccination status
  • Practicing physical distancing if unvaccinated
  • Staying home if you feel sick - contact your advisor to reschedule your appointment or meet virtually

Appointment availability may be impacted by COVID-19 health and safety concerns. SES will make every possible effort to notify students in the event an advising appointment must be canceled. 

No in-person academic advising services will occur if UW Bothell enacts emergency procedures to ensure the health and safety of our community. Students are encouraged to monitor class cancellations and campus closure alerts using the UW Alert system.
