Student Teaching Requirements

  • Candidacy
  • Cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher
  • Successful Completion of all Professional Courses with a B- or higher ( A student may have one exemption, although the student must earn a grade of C- or higher in that particular course. Practicum courses are not eligible for exemption.)


Students in ALL of our Teacher Education programs (ECH, ECS, ELE, Secondary/Middle, Special Education, School Health, Phys Ed and World Language K-12)  must be fingerprinted and have a Criminal History Record Check prior to their first experience in the field.  These checks are good for 5 years and will most likely take students through their initial certification.

Student teachers participate in a variety of supervised experiences in a school to enable them to synthesize educational theory and academic knowledge in public school classrooms. Following a school’s schedule and working with classroom teachers, their students, and other school personnel, student teachers increase their responsibility over time. The target is to assume a full teaching load including all of the non-teaching duties. Students participate in a weekly seminar during their student teaching experience. Pass/Fail only. Offered Fall and Spring. 15 Credits
