(Elementary Ed. DTA)
This degree program is undergoing revision. For more information, please contact Amy Shank, WVC English faculty, 509.682.6724.
The associate in elementary education-direct transfer degree (Elementary Ed. DTA) is designed to prepare students for transfer into an elementary education major. This degree is not the same as the associate of arts and sciences direct transfer agreement (AAS-DTA) nor the Business DTA. The elementary education DTA is the best option if you have not yet decided on your school of choice but want to make sure you meet the requirements for entry into an elementary education program.
Each university sets minimum GPA requirements for admission to teaching programs, which may be higher than this degree requires (see below). Meeting the minimum GPA does not guarantee admission into your transfer institution. It is recommended that you check with your transfer institution for specific GPA information, as it may vary depending on the university. You must also meet other university program requirements before entering into a bachelor's in elementary education program, including taking the WEST-B. Each university has foreign language requirements that must be met by the time of graduation from the university.
The following are the degree requirements for the associate in elementary education-direct transfer degree. You must complete at least 90 credit hours in college transfer courses numbered 100 and above with a minimum college grade point average of 2.0:
Writing Skills: 10 credits
Quantitative Skills: 15 credits

Natural Sciences: 15 credits
