Can I take coursework in my student teaching semester?

No. You are only allowed to take Student Teaching and the co-requisite Student Teaching Seminar during the student teaching semester. All major and general education courses, as well as graduation and the IEE Certification Program requirements must be fulfilled by the end of the term immediately preceding student teaching. Spring student teachers must have all requirements complete by the end of the preceding Fall semester, as only one course can be taken in the Winter session – i.e., practicum.

Undergraduate students must be eligible to graduate the semester prior to the student teaching semester. You will still be considered for student teaching if you need to use student teaching credits to meet graduation requirements.
