Students in the QUEST/TSD program must maintain a CGPA ≥ 3.0. Students must satisfy all core requirements and specific departmental requirements for their liberal arts/science major in order to be eligible for a baccalaureate degree. Students in the QUEST/TSD Program must major in a liberal arts/science discipline and will complete 40 credits as a concentration in elementary or special education. Fifteen of the 40 education credits are “dual” credits that count toward the completion of both the BA/BS and the MAT degree. A minimum of 128-145 credits are required to complete a BA/BS degree. Students who are unable to complete the required courses as undergraduates will complete them in year 5, or additional time, if needed. QUEST/TSD students who complete 15 graduate credits in their undergraduate program must complete a minimum of an additional 25 graduate credits (total of 40 graduate credits) to earn their Masters degree. All students enrolled in QUEST/TSD must meet each semester with their QUEST/TSD advisor to plan for and review FDU program requirements as well as State certification requirements. Students who have not taken a biology, hygiene, physiology or substance abuse course must take the State approved Health Examination to fulfill this certification requirement. Prior to Field Experience IV, a passing score on the Praxis is required.

In order to complete the Master of Arts in Teaching program in 5 years, some students may need to take courses in summer and winter sessions in Years 2-5 depending upon their particular program requirements and approval of their QUEST/TSD and Liberal Arts/Science advisors.
QUEST students may attend the study abroad program at FDU Wroxton, England in their junior year. Study in Wroxton might necessitate taking other required courses over a summer semester.
