Union College offers Rank I programs for teachers and school administrators. Generally, most have completed requirements for the M.A. in Education degree or the Fifth-Year Certificate. A GPA of 3.0 is necessary for unconditional admission to the program. The student’s program shall be planned in consultation with an advisor prior to completion of nine hours of course work applicable to the program. Teachers who do not possess a Master’s Degree in Education are eligible for a general Rank I program, but are not eligible for admission to certification programs in Educational Leadership. Rank I students will complete GRST 500 if they did not as a master’s student. They will also have to complete an e-portfolio for their program.
