Here to help you succeed

In the College of Education Advising and Teacher Education Success Office -- or CATS Office -- we have one goal: your success. We're here for you throughout your academic journey with the guidance and resources you need.

The CATS Office and our professional advisors assist with: 

  • exploring degree options
  • class planning and registration
  • admission to UNI Teacher Education
  • requirements leading to licensure

If you're a student with a secondary teaching major, you should reach out to your college-based advisors for general advising assistance with your core academic major. If unsure where to turn, the CATS Office can help get you to the right place.
