Education majors should note that certification requirements are established by the Louisiana Department of Education and are subject to change. Some revised state standards are anticipated in 1996 and 1997. The new standards will apply to anyone making an application for teacher certification on or after September 1, 2000. Students should consult with their advisors to assure that they meet these requirements.

Education majors should consult the Department of Education section in this catalog for requirements to be formally admitted into Xavier's Teacher Education Program.
