UD will transfer up to 18 semester hours from Emmaus Teacher Education, 12 semester hours from our special education core and 6 credit hours of student teaching in special education, to their TEP and then require the candidate to successfully complete 6 semester hours of coursework in Managing Behavior & Social Skills and Communication & Collaborative Partnerships to be eligible for the recommendation.
