Teacher Certification

The Office of Student Services and Credentialing (OSSC) is responsible for placing students in local public schools for field and clinical practice experiences. This provides students opportunities to apply their knowledge, skills and dispositions in a variety of settings. 

These experiences integrate with coursework, are developmentally sequenced for the candidates and help candidates develop the competence necessary to begin their careers.

All candidates seeking initial teacher licensure, regardless of the college in which they are enrolled, must meet the requirements for admission to professional education, complete an approved teaching curriculum, and pass the required PRAXIS tests as determined by the major to be recommended for licensure.
