Everyone has questions. We just pulled together a few of the frequently asked ones here for you to search. Let us know if you need any additional assistance. We'd be glad to help.

Can I add ESL or Special Ed endorsements to my initial teaching certificate?

Yes, although adding one of these endorsements requires additional hours and an additional semester of study.

Can I bring fewer than three students?

Yes.  If your school sends only one or two students, they will be added to a team on the day of the event.

Can I bring more than three students or additional sponsors?

Unfortunately, no.  Last year, the workshop filled very quickly (within hours of registration opening).  In order to include as many schools as possible, we have to limit participation to three students and one sponsor per school.

Can I complete all work for the Curriculum & Instruction degree online?

No, students are limited to taking a maximum of 15 hours of their coursework as online courses.

Can I designate my gift?

Some faculty and staff may choose to give their gift to a specific fund or area of giving such as the Doane Scholarship Fund, other need based scholarships, academic programs, athletics, fine arts or to support the Perkins Library.

Can I eat on campus?
  • You are welcome to eat in the cafeteria, at Tiger Inn, or go through the Grab-N-Go station located within the cafeteria.

  • Either pay as you go, or purchase a meal plan through the business office.

  • If you want to bring your own food, refrigerators and microwaves are available in the Student Leadership Office with additional microwaves for your use in the cafeteria.

Can I give my gift to more than one area?

Yes!  You can designate your gift to as many areas as you would like.

Can I just drop off my paper for editing or proofreading and pick it up later?

No.  The Writing Center is not an editing or proofreading service.   Rather, we will help you edit or proofread your own work, pointing out errors and patterns of error as we go and working with you to correct them.  Why?  Eventually, we want you to be able to do it without us.  

Can I just walk in and get help?

We welcome walk-ins but give priority to students with appointments.  So we encourage you to call ahead or visit and confirm a time.
