You are expected to maintain high professional and academic standards. Quality of work and timely progress through the program are two (2) criteria considered as evidence of your professional competence.

Program expectations are as follows:

  1. Provisional admission to specific program is valid for a period of five (5) years. If you have not completed the program within the five-year period, you will be required to seek readmission under the current admission standards.
  2. Professional education credit hours older than five (5) years at the time of program admission may not be counted toward licensure.
  3. Failure to maintain a level of achievement consistent with the program standards required for teacher education admission may result in suspension from the program. Once you are admitted to the program, you must maintain a GPA of 2.75. You cannot receive a grade lower than a B in any professional education course. If you do receive a grade lower than a B, you may repeat any professional education course one (1) time only.
  4. Maintain a 2.0 average on the Teacher Education Professional Dispositions tool.
  5. Documented violations of the UTTC Student Code of Conduct may be considered grounds for suspension or dismissal from the Teacher Education program.
  6. You are admitted on a provisional basis until you begin your student teaching. If you fail to maintain an acceptable level of achievement during this time, corrective action will be taken.
