"NEW" Effective Fall 2015, students must pass ALL Praxis exams required for licensure prior to being admitted to student teaching. For additional information, contact the Office of Education Student Services located in 205 Gooch Hall.
Effective Fall 2013, a $400 Student Teaching Placement fee will be charged to your Banner account upon registration for student teaching courses. You may view this charge when fees are assessed for the term you plan to student teach. Financial aid may be used to cover this expense. The Cooperating Teacher at each placement will be compensated $200. The Office of ESS will process all paperwork associated with the payment that will be mailed directly to the Cooperating Teacher.
