Prior to Student Teaching Placement

The Student Teaching Application precedes your personal student teaching placement process.  Links to complete this application will be provided on the Field Placement Website and emailed to students after attendance at the required info-sessions.  These mandatory sessions are offered twice and occur on the Monday and Friday of the week prior to finals week at 3:30 p.m. in Reid 425.  Choose either session to receive important information about the student teaching application.  Once you complete the application, you are ready to begin the steps which will lead to placement and your student teaching experience.   Be sure to take the time to read the information below and follow the accompanying links to ensure you are compliant and aware of all policies and procedures. Get ready early!  Reach out to the Field Placement and Licensure office with questions.
