Core IV Student Teaching/Internship Experience

Core IV Student Teaching/Internship experience is a full-time, supervised experience to be completed in a continuous sequence of weeks for a designated time period.  During this period, certified and experienced professionals supervise candidates. The Core IV experience requires a total commitment on the part of each student. Normally no other courses should be taken, and students are discouraged from holding part-time, evening, and weekend jobs.

For a complete resource guide for the student teaching process, please download the College of Education Student Teaching Handbook.

Prerequisites:
  1. Senior or graduate standing.
  2. Must be fully admitted to Core III/Teacher Education.
  3. A cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or better; a minimum grade point average of 2.75 in major, minor, or endorsement areas.  No grade of less than "C" (2.0) may be counted in coursework taken in major program.  A grade point average of no less than 2.5 in professional education courses.  All of these courses should be completed prior to student teaching.
