Continuation in the Program
What happens if my GPA falls below 3.0 during the program?
Candidates 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?
Candidates 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 form the program.
What happens if I notice that I'm not doing will in a course?
You should meet with the course instructor, seek recommendations, and apply yourself immediately to the task of improving. If you have 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
