Admission Policies

To be admitted to the Judith Herb College of Education at The University of Toledo, direct-from-high-school students need a minimum cumulative high school grade point average (GPA) of 2.7 or an ACT of 21.

Direct-from-high-school students not qualifying for admission to the Judith Herb College of Education will be admitted to The University of Toledo’s Exploratory Studies program which is part of the University College. Students who want to transfer from University College into the Judith Herb College of Education must earn 12 hours of college-level work and be in good academic standing.

Selective/Limited Admission

Students who are eligible for initial admission to the college are not guaranteed admission to the professional education program in the junior year. All licensure programs have specific additional requirements for admission to professional education.

Requirements for Students with an Associate’s Degree

Students holding associate’s degrees from accredited colleges are encouraged to enroll in the College. Students may earn a bachelor’s degree upon completion of two or more additional years of full-time study; see the advisor in the major to determine a plan of study. The following regulations apply:

  1. Students must complete the equivalent of the specified University core.
  2. In all baccalaureate programs, a minimum of 64 hours must be taken at the 2000 to 4000 levels; of these a minimum of 32 hours must be taken at the 3000 and 4000 levels. Coursework from other institutions is accepted at the level at which the course was taught at that institution.

Admission with Transfer Credit from Another Institution

Students with satisfactory academic records wishing to transfer into UToledo and the Judith Herb College of Education must meet the minimum entrance requirements of The University of Toledo. After submission of official transcripts from all colleges/universities attended and acceptance by the College, transfer courses are evaluated. The evaluation process must be completed before the end of the first term of attendance.

Number of credit hours and minimum required GPA for transfer students:

Number of Credit Hours Transferred Minimum Required GPA
Less than 30 2.3 overall
30-59 2.5 overall
60 or more 2.7 overall and 2.7 in student's major

Readmission of Former Students

Undergraduate students who discontinue course work for a period of at least one academic year (not including summer) must request readmission to the University. If students have taken any course work at another institution during the time they have been away from the University (other than transient status), they must complete a new application in the Office of Undergraduate Admission and meet transfer admission requirements.

Students who have not taken course work for more than 12 months must comply with the college requirements at the time of readmission. When seeking readmission, students whose grade point average (GPA) is below 2.0 can only be readmitted on approval of the associate dean. Students with a GPA of 2.0 or higher may seek readmission in the college office.

Change of College (change of major)

Students in good standing (minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0) who wish to change from another college within The University of Toledo to the Judith Herb College of Education should make an appointment with a college advisor in the Office of Student Services (call 419.530.2495) to discuss the transfer and have academic records reviewed. All program requirements, including University core, must be fulfilled as specified in the catalog for the year in which the student enters the College. All undergraduate hours attempted and earned at the University of Toledo, as well as the GPA, will transfer.

Honors Program

The Honors Program in the Judith Herb College of Education provides opportunities for challenging and individualized study for undergraduate students of unusually high ability, motivation and initiative. For admission requirements, see Admission to the University Honors Program in the General Section of this catalog.
