*EDR 304 and 306 are prerequisites for required courses in the Reading Minor.  Credits earned from these courses are not applicable toward fulfilling the 18 credit Reading Minor requirement.

**FATE is not an application or acceptance requirement for the Reading Minor program; however, it will be necessary in its overall completion.

***EDR 317 and 318 are field courses and require clearances. 

****EDR 321 is not a field course but still requires clearances.

-All clearances must be current (done within the past year) and valid (for the entire duration of the course).  Please be sure to continually check the College of Education's Student Information page about clearances for important updates and procedures about clearance requirements.
