Required After Teacher Education Program entry, before Student Teaching

Required After Teacher Education Program entry, during Student Teaching:


All professional education, general education courses for teachers, major, endorsement, and supporting courses require a grade of “C-” or better for teacher licensure and graduation.

All students who have declared Physical Education as their major are required to complete the annual fall fitness testing. Failure to complete the test will result in a delay of enrolling in further PHED, EXSS, and EDUC courses. If a student is unable to complete any of the fitness testing components due to documented injury, illness, or disability, the Department of Exercise and Sports Science will provide appropriate accommodations that will 1) enable them to complete the test component as it was intended, or 2) provide a suitable component that satisfies the testing criteria and is accommodating to the student’s need.
