Teacher Education Preferred Admissions Program (TEPA)

As an upper academic level unit, the School of Education admits students as juniors, however we encourage students applying to the University as freshmen to indicate their interest in later transferring to the School of Education by choosing the Preferred Admissions program.

Benefits of Teacher Education Preferred Admissions (TEPA) include:

Once you have decided whether the elementary or secondary teacher education program best suits your aspirations (see the academic program pages), you may apply using the instructions for new freshmen. To become a Preferred Admissions student, indicate your interest on the University of Michigan application supplement and include information about why you would like to be a part of the program as instructed in the second required essay.
