Advising will be handled by the BMMT program coordinator if you are an undergraduate major and by the College of Education if you are a Second Bachelor Teaching Certification major.
This means you should contact your advisor as soon as you are accepted at Eastern Michigan University and/or have declared your major as BMMT. Program students want to get started on the right foot towards a successful degree path. Skipping the step of contacting your advisor for help with course selection is ill advised.
There are a few TIPS that will help you have a successful academic advising meeting with the program coordinator. Remember you are entering a profession and you should always be prepared for meetings! If you follow these TIPS, you will be on your way to an exciting career.
Tips for planning for your advising appointment:
- Prepare ahead of time.
- Review the EMU Catalog and/or the website so that you know what Gen Ed and other courses you need to take to complete your degree.
- Review the standard course schedule on this website. The schedule will tell you when the required BMMT courses are offered, allowing you to plan around other course work and employment.
- Look at the standard schedule of BMMT courses and the EMU Catalog to make sure you know what prerequisites are required for the courses you want to take.
- You need a minimum of 124 total hours to receive a Bachelor of Science Degree at EMU, which may not include prerequisites. There are other graduation requirements so review the EMU Catalog.
