In order to student teach, candidates must submit an online application for admission to student teaching and have an up-to-date electronic portfolio approved by the director of field experience. The application is linked below and should be submitted online no later than February 1 for the fall semester and September 1 for the spring semester.
The application must be approved by the director of field experiences before the student may engage in student teaching. Student teachers must have evidence of professional liability insurance coverage and an approved background check administered through the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) on file. Procedures for obtaining the background check are linked in the navigation panel on this website.
Before a student may be admitted to student teaching, all courses within the program with an EDU, PSY, RDG, or SPE prefix must be completed with a minimum grade of “C.” Also, the student must have an overall GPA of at least 2.75 in all coursework and teaching subject-matter endorsements.
