Continuation in the Program

What happens if my GPA falls below 3.0 during the program?

Students whose GPA falls below 3.0 are subject to disqualification from the program. This applies also to candidates who receive grades of C or worse while taking courses in the program.


What happens if I fail student-teaching or the directed teaching practicum?

Students who fail a practicum once will be given an opportunity to do better the second time. However, they must skip a semester (to practice skills, or improve teaching situation) before re-applying to take it again. Those that fail the second time will be disenrolled from the program.


What happens if I notice that I'm not doing will in a course?

Students should meet with the course instructor, seek recommendations, and apply themselves immediately to the task of improving. If a student has problems with communication (oral and/or written) seek help from:

    • Communicative Disorders and Sciences
    • Counseling Center
    • Disability Resource Center
    • Martin Luther King Library
    • Writing Center
