What is a Bulletin?

The School of Education Bulletin is a resource and roadmap that provides students with the information they need to make the most of their undergraduate education and to graduate from the School in a timely manner. It is the official source of information regarding degree requirements, policies and procedures, programs of study, courses, and opportunities within and outside of individual programs. Students pursuing degrees in other schools on the Bloomington campus should consult the IU Bloomington Bulletins website to find the appropriate bulletin that covers their degree program. Students will also find useful information listed on the School website and the websites of individual programs

Which Bulletin Should You Use?

Students follow the requirements included in the Bulletin published in the year they first enrolled (matriculated) as a degree-seeking student at Indiana University Bloomington. For instance, a new freshman or transfer student beginning at IUB in the summer or fall of 2017 will be held to the requirements laid out in the 2016-2018 Bulletin of the School of Education. For questions regarding which Bulletin to use, please consult the Office of Teacher Education, (812) 856-8500 or The requirements outlined in the Bulletin are in effect at the time of matriculation and will remain constant throughout your time in the School, assuming you graduate within seven years.

Academic Advising

Students interested in the teacher education programs can seek information about the School of Education via email at or arrange for an appointment with an academic advisor by telephone at (812) 856-8500. Academic advisors are available throughout the year.

Students should make certain that they understand the requirements for successful completion of the program they have selected and have an appropriate plan for each semester. Online Academic Advising Reports (AAR) and program planning sheets are two effective tools used by advisors and students to track academic progress. AARs are available to admitted Indiana University students through One.IU. AARs allow Indiana University students to view their completed and enrolled course credits in a context that shows completed academic program requirements as well as requirements that remain unfinished. Detailed planning sheets are available at ED 1000 or on the web. Adhering to stated requirements is the student’s responsibility.

Student Responsibility

Students are responsible for planning their own programs of study and for meeting the degree requirements for graduation. For advice in fulfilling these requirements and in planning a course of study, students in the School of Education are encouraged to regularly seek out academic counseling from the academic advisors. Although academic advisors will do their best to aid students, it is ultimately each student’s responsibility to plan an appropriate academic course of study and to fulfill the various degree requirements. Familiarizing themselves with the contents of this Bulletin is a crucial first step that students can and should take to ensure they know what opportunities are available to them and what requirements are expected of all students in the School of Education.


While every effort is made to provide accurate and current information, Indiana University reserves the right to change without notice statements in the bulletin series concerning rules, policies, fees, curricula, or other matters.
