On Wednesday, Feb. 13, and Thursday, Feb. 14, the Education Department will hold informational meetings about the Teacher Certification Program at 5 p.m. in Coxe 8.
Ordinarily, students must apply for admission to the Teacher Education Program in the spring term of the first year,but a “9th semester option” permits sophomores to also apply to the Teacher Certification Program.
Sophomores who pursue this arrangement enter the teacher education program as juniors and student-teach during a 9th (post-graduate) semester, paying a nominal fee rather than tuition. However, they must graduate prior to student teaching. If you are interested in the Teacher Certification Program, we urge you to attend one of these meetings.
All are also welcome to come by Merritt Hall and speak with any Education Department faculty member.
