After successfully completing the Stage II application process (SEE ABOVE) and its requirements, the candidate is officially in the respective undergraduate initial teacher licensure program of study. The candidate will be accepted into Stage II after completing the Stage II application, meeting all Stage II requirements, and receiving advisor(s) approval after meeting with the candidate's advisor. Candidates should refer to the Policies and Procedures Manual concerning this application process. Stage II involves the completion of upper-level professional education courses and university content courses in the undergraduate initial teacher licensure programs. All candidates must apply for Stage II and meet all Stage II requirements in order to be enrolled in Stage II courses.
CANDIDATES SHOULD RECOGNIZE THAT TIMELY APPLICATION TO STAGE II IS ESSENTIAL TO ALLOW AMPLE TIME FOR ADMINISTERING CLINICAL FIELD PLACEMENTS AND FOR THE REQUIRED BACKGROUND CHECK TO BE COMPLETED.
This is particularly important since candidates are required to be in the field before the university begins in the fall and spring semesters during the Internship I experience (one of the clinical field experiences in Stage II). The Office of Teacher Education Student Services administers all field placements within public schools during all stages of preparation, and the mentor/host teachers in these clinical field experiences complete surveys and evaluations concerning candidates placed within their classrooms during these clinical field experiences. The Internship I experience is to be completed during the last semester of Stage II in the semester immediately prior to and as a prerequisite to the Full Internship/Internship II experience in all undergraduate initial teacher licensure programs.
