    (UMW). These 6 courses will start your path towards Elementary Education,
    Secondary Education, Pre-K12 Education, or Special Education. The program is
    offered to rising juniors and seniors. Students can choose to start their college

    Please Note:
    Prospective students may be required to complete an application for admission, provide qualifying SAT
    scores, or take a placement test. They also will register through their high school in the spring. Tuition is
    the responsibility of the parents. In determining whether to drop a DE course, the student must follow
    drop/add procedures and timelines established by the college, not those of the school division.
    Additionally, students must provide their own transportation to all required practicums. SCPS, however,
    will make every effort to help any student who does not have transportation available for practicums.
