Students

Welcome to the virtual home of the College of Education and Human Services at Montclair State University. Throughout this web site, you will find information that you will find useful throughout your time as a graduate or undergraduate student in the College, and we encourage you to take some time to become familiar with the site and its features. We also encourage you to visit the College site often, as it provides the latest information on College news and events over the course of each year.

Although you will find important and interesting information throughout our web site, we would like to point out several sections that may be of most use to students:

Our Departments and Programs pages are important sites that will provide you with key contacts and information that you will need to know as you proceed through your undergraduate major or graduate program. Please visit these sites to view academic programs of study, connect with faculty members, and to stay informed regarding policies, procedures, and deadlines. If you are a teacher education student, you will also want to visit the Center of Pedagogy site, which includes all manuals and forms and valuable information regarding initial teacher certification.

The College also hosts its own Career Services Office, where students will be guided through the career planning process. Career Services staff members offer one-on-one career advising, resume critique, workshops and online tools to assist students throughout their academic career and in their job search.

Advising plays a critical role in your success as a student, and we encourage you to meet with your faculty advisor on a regular basis. To determine your assigned faculty advisor:

  • If you are an undergraduate student, please log on to WESS and select Student Records/Advisor, or contact your academic department.
  • If you are a graduate student, please contact your academic department.

If you have difficulty reaching your faculty advisor or graduate program coordinator, please contact Tammy Samuels, Assistant Dean of the College of Education and Human Services at (973) 655-3096.

If you have any concerns regarding courses or other aspects of your academic program, please follow these steps. Students should attempt to first resolve issues at the faculty level, followed by the program coordinator, and the department chair. If the matter is not satisfactorily resolved at these levels, please contact Tammy Samuels, Assistant Dean of CEHS, at cehs-asstdean@mail.montclair.edu or (973) 655-3096.
