School of Education Intensive Guidelines

Since only three intensives are required for our licensure and doctoral programs, we have only a short time of face-to-face contact. Your ability to successfully complete these courses is imperative for recommending you for licensure to work with K-12 students or to prepare you for your dissertation. Because of this, the following guidelines are part of the School of Education intensives.

NOTE:  Additional information (housing, transportation, etc.) available at LUO Intensives
