Application Process

The Office of Field Services reviews the application to determine an appropriate placement. Pertinent information is entered into the computer data base.

After the GPA and coursework are verified, an initial request letter is sent to the building Principal that includes those names of students and specialty areas.

Once a commitment is made for placement, a final letter is sent to the Principal and Cooperating Teacher. The local School Boards also approves all student teaching assignments.

After the current semester's grades are due in to the Registrar's office, coursework and GPA's are rechecked. A letter is then sent to the student's mailing address informing them of their school assignment, grade/subject area, Cooperating Teacher, and Orientation information.
