Welcome to the School of Education!

It is important that the substance of our success be centered upon students and the intellectual contribution that together we can make in education. Our substance will define us into the future, so our vision must clarify how we will contribute to the communities that we serve, be it the Inland Empire, the state of California or the national professional communities.


Step 1: Get Ready!

New Student Orientation

As a new student, you are required to complete the New Student Orientation (NSO). The NSO will introduce you to the School of Education and the resources available to you. You will learn about your program and be able to identify support systems.

  • The NSO is program-specific and made up of modules that are hosted via Sharepoint.
  • Modules are flexible and will allow you to self-pace.
  • Complete all orientation modules before the start of term.
