All prospective teachers are required to meet professional teacher education requirements as a part of their preparation.
All students must satisfactorily complete a minimum of 80 hours of pre-student teaching clinical experience. This requirement may be met through a pre-student teaching course (for example, C I 280, C I 480, C I 581) or, in certain endorsement areas, a course designated to provide an equivalent experience. Students complete a background check before initial placement in schools and other appropriate locations.
