What to Expect from our Virtual College of Education Admission Process

I am ready to apply for College of Education Admission. What is my next step?

  • Learn about the College of Education Application process from the information further down the page.
  • Applications may be submitted starting April 6, 2020 up until registration is closed for the Fall 2020 semester. Any assistance and appointments needed during this process will be conducted virtually using Blackboard or WebEx software*.
  • Prospective students will be contacted via Dusty email to notify that applications may be submitted, as well as a link for a scheduled live virtual presentation of the process with steps on how to set up and prepare. This presentation is meant to guide you through the application process to the College of Education and answer any questions you may have about the process.
  • Your COED admissions team will send you a link to the WebEx meeting a week prior to the chosen date. If you have any issues with the software, please call our office at 956-326-2427 in order to ensure you do not miss out on these live presentations. 

 How do virtual presentations work?

  • When you access the presentation with the software, you will be able to hear and see your COED Academic Success Coach who is overseeing Admissions on your screen. 
  • They will be able to share their computer screen with you to guide you through the different forms needed to be filled to complete your admissions packet. 
  • It is important to ask any questions during or after the presentation if needed in order to ensure proper submission. 


*WebEx is a free conferencing software that allows for either audio or video participation. You can contact the Office of Information Technology (OIT) for help with this software.
