When you submit an application to us, we ask for information such as your name, e-mail address, birth date, ZIP code, employment history, gender, ethnicity, Social Security number, personal interests, educational background, and phone numbers. This information is used solely to determine your eligibility for our Educator Preparation Program (EPP), to provide required demographic information to the Michigan MDE, and to maintain our records should you be admitted to the EPP program.
