Student Teaching Application Process


Teacher candidates interested in seeking student teaching placements during either the fall or the spring semester of their senior year are required to formally apply in February of the preceding year. M.S.T. and M.S.Ed. students seeking placements are also asked to complete the application process during the year preceding the actual student teaching experience. 

The Application Process

Applications for student teaching will be considered complete when teacher candidates have attended one of the mandatory application/orientation meetings, completed an application form, and paid their application fee at the student accounts office. Receipts from this payment must be attached to the application form and submitted prior to the February application deadline (actual deadline dates may vary by year).

After completing the application process, additional requirements and course registration for student teaching will vary according to the semester during which student teaching will be sought. Teacher candidates who wish to student teach during the fall semester of the upcoming year have an earlier deadline and submission requirements than those who wish to student teach during the spring. An overview of the application process has been provided to assist teacher candidates in understanding the deadlines and the requirements.
