Teacher education students must meet several series of requirements throughout their college career in order to continue to the next phase of their education. In addition to general requirements, the progress of teacher education students is reviewed and evaluated at four transition points or portals. Students must successfully complete the requirements for each transition point before advancing.
The program also includes varied field experiences in PK-12 schools. Candidates must successfully complete 180 hours of field experiences prior to clinical practice and an additional 180 hours to exit clinical practice.
