Teacher Education Degree Completion:
It is possible for students to complete their degree in four years by taking summer courses, J-term or May-term classes and carrying 15-17 credits each semester. A possible four year degree is also dependent on which major/minor is selected. Students meet with academic advisors to put together a four year plan in order to determine the number of required semesters.

Exemplary Status:

The Teacher Education Program at Cornerstone University is awarded TEAC accreditation by the Inquiry Brief Commission of Council for Accreditation of Educator Preparation (CAEP) for a period of seven years, from October 2013 to October 2020. The accreditation does not include individual education courses that the EPP offers to P-12 educators for professional development, relicensure, or other purposes.
