  • Admission to Student Teaching

    Student teaching is the most effective way to learn what it’s really like on the other side of the desk. And it’s an integral part of teacher education here at Capital.

    A formal application is required to student teach. Students wishing to student teach Fall Semester must apply no later than March 1. Students wishing to student teach Spring Semester must apply no later than October 1. In addition to the application, students must submit a resume and personal statement.

    In order to student teach, a student must have met the requirements for acceptance and retention in the Teacher Education Program. In addition, candidates must have achieved a minimum GPA of 2.75 content courses in their major.

    Students must verify they are of good moral character through fingerprinting and BCI and FBI background checks as required by Ohio Revised Code.

    ***Effective for students who enter the University during the Fall 2013 semester or later:  It is a requirement of the Education Department that all exams needed for licensure (with the exception of those for endorsements) be taken and passed prior to student teaching.

    A student who is on disciplinary probation may not student teach.

    Education Fees

    A fee, paid to the university, is charged for the student teaching experience. This fee is used to provide services to school districts in exchange for services of cooperating teachers

    Background Checks

    BCI and FBI checks are required to be less than one year old and on file in the Education Department Office prior to all field experiences. Some districts also require TB tests.
