2021-2022 Student Teachers

Students pursuing their initial teaching license will complete a 15-week supervised field experience in their second year after successfully completing EDP 586 and EDP 591. Anyone intending to student teach in the fall 2021 or spring 2022 semesters must submit an application for student teaching by this November. Questions and completed applications may be emailed to Jan Benes in the Office of Student Teaching and Field Experiences.

Special Education M.Ed. Application

The M.Ed. program only requires 4 courses in addition to the licensure program coursework. If you were admitted this fall as a license-only student and are now considering the M.Ed. degree, please submit a complete master’s degree application by December 10. Students should select the Spring 2021 term on their M.Ed. applications.

It’s important to not wait too long to apply for the M.Ed. Non-degree students are allowed to count no more than 12 of the most recent graduate hours earned toward the degree. All 12 of those hours are subject to the university's 5-year time limitation for credit toward a degree.

Graduating Students

Students intending to graduate in this and upcoming terms must submit applications this month. The graduation application deadline for Fall 2020, Winter 2021 and Spring 2021 graduates is October 31, 2020. The university's fall commencement date has not yet been set. Winter term commencement is January 23. Spring commencement will be May 15.

Additional information about applying for graduation is available on the One Stop and Graduate School's websites.

Future Term Registration

Registration for the winter term is available in BannerWeb. Though students may web register through Monday, January 4, we strongly recommend students register as soon as possible.  Please consult your program course requirement document & plan of study before choosing courses, and contact Lesley with questions before registering. Spring semester should be available soon. Contact the One Stop office for registration assistance.
