Academic Standing and Academic Probation

  1. To remain in good academic standing in the teacher education program, undergraduate teacher candidates must maintain a minimum overall grade point average of 3.0, and receive at least a C in all major and teacher education courses required for certification. Graduate students must maintain an overall grade point average of 3.0 and must achieve at least a B in all pedagogy courses. Graduate students should check with their respective program advisors regarding minimum grade requirements in their content courses.
  2. In the event that the conditions in #1 are not met, the teacher candidate may be placed on probation and, at the discretion of the program director, may or may not be permitted to register for the next course in the professional education sequence until the grade point average has been raised to 3.0 for undergraduate students, and 3.0 for graduate students, or until a satisfactory grade has been earned in the required course.
  3. At the discretion of the teacher education program director, teacher candidates on probation may be permitted to continue in the professional education sequence if they agree to take specific steps to remedy deficiencies in their prior coursework. Remediation will consist of retaking the content course, but, in the case of the pedagogy courses, may consist of additional academic work assigned by the program director in consultation with the instructor of the pedagogy course(s) in question.
