Repeating Practicum or Student Teaching
In the event that a student is dismissed from student teaching or receives a grade lower than a C, the student will not be allowed to retake student teaching.
Students are allowed only one opportunity to obtain the minimum grade for student teaching because of the importance of this experience in showing they meet the 8 educator preparation standards necessary to obtain a license. Students who do not successfully complete a student teaching placement will be counseled to earn a different degree.
