Students whose GPA falls below 3.0 are subject to disqualification from the program. Students who receive a grade less than a B are sent warning letter from  the Chair. See Grading policy under Student Resources link. 

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

Students who fail a practicum once will be given one more  opportunity or a second placement. 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.Students should also meet with their faculty advisor for advise and guidance. If a student has problems with communication (oral and/or written) seek help from:
