Students seeking to obtain degrees in teaching must be admitted into the Teacher Education Program. Admission into the Teacher Education Program normally needs to take place at the beginning of the junior year. This process involves meeting all requirements of admission and satisfactory completion of the admissions process.
The Professional Education Programs Office and the Teacher Education Handbook provide the information and forms required for Admission to the Teacher Education Program.
Admission is the Checkpoint 1 for Teacher Education programs. Checkpoint 1 includes eligibility requirements and the Application for Admission.
You will receive a formal letter of acceptance into the Teacher Education Program from the Professional Education Programs Director after your application has been processed and verified.
Official admittance to the teacher education program does not carry a guarantee of continuance in the program. In addition to the retention checkpoints (see the current Teacher Education Handbook), you must maintain academic proficiency, moral responsibility, emotional stability, and satisfactory professional growth (see Professional Behavior Plan) to continue in the program.
