Students must be fully accepted into teacher education in order to take education classes in their program of study. If a student has missing requirements (check your status) s/he must complete them prior to registering for education classes. For a list of classes that you can not take without full acceptance to teacher education, click here.
Programs monitor student progress according to the procedure listed below:
1. Student Declares Major/Pre-professional Program
2. Education Support Center (ESC) maintains the database that allows the student’s College of Education (COE) advisor and the student to monitor the student’s progress towards acceptance.
If a student is blocked from taking courses because they are not fully accepted into teacher education, they can fill out an appeal form, which will be completed by the student and their program and returned to the ESC.
3. The program will notify students of their status based on the following options:
4. The student can request an appeal of the program decision by indicating this request on the appeal form and returning it to the Education Support Center.
5. The appeal is heard by the AR&E committee who reviews it for due process and equity. The committee's responsibility is "only to ascertain whether all parties have had an opportunity to present all relevant facts and have received a fair and impartial hearing at each level" (Undergraduate Student Handbook, 2011).
6. The assistant dean of the COE notifies the student and the program of the decision.
7. The student can appeal that decision to the dean of the COE.
Students who have been admitted into teacher education programs must continue to meet all criteria that were required for admission throughout their course of study. Failure to maintain the standards specified in the criteria may result in probationary status or dismissal from the program. Programs monitor GPA, course grades, professional behaviors, and other program expectations.
