Prospective student teachers must apply for student teaching one year before they plan to student teach. Fall applications must be submitted by Nov. 1 one year prior to student teaching. Spring applications must be submitted by April 1 one year prior to student teaching as well. Any changes in application requests must be submitted by Dec. 1 (for Fall applicants) or by May 1 (for Spring applicants). Considerations to waive this requirement can be made on written documentation that describes extraordinary circumstances.
The general application process is:
- Students attend a mandatory application meeting announced at the beginning of each semester.
- Students complete the application requirements necessary to be eligible for student teaching.
- The student teaching office seeks placements for students in collaboration with school district administrators, fieldwork liaisons, and student teaching candidates.
- Students monitor their placement status via the college-wide communication system.
Specific dates regarding application sessions as well as workshops can be found on the Student Teaching General Schedule.
