Probation Policy

After you have been admitted into the Teacher Education Program, if at any time you no longer meet the requirements (made a D or your GPA dropped below a 2.75) for admission/retention, you will be placed on probation for one long semester (Spring or Fall). If you rectify the problem, you will be lifted off of probation and returned to good standing. If you do not, you will be dropped from the program. You will not be allowed to continue in your professional development courses or clinical teach until you have reapplied and been admitted back into the program.

For example, if you made a D or an F in a class in your major certification field in the Spring, you would be sent a letter in early summer saying you have been placed on probation for the Fall semester. If you retake that class and make a C or better during the Summer or during the Fall, you will be lifted off of probation and returned to good standing. At the end of the Fall semester if you have not replaced the grade with a C or better, you would be dropped from the program.

You must be in good standing before you clinical teach.

Please contact the Teacher Education Program office at 254-968-9815 or the Certification Officer at 254-968-9817 directly if you have specific questions or concerns.
