Teacher Education Program: Admission and Retention (TEPAR)

The most important responsibility of any profession is service to its clients. Since the clients of the teacher education program are ultimately the children and youth taught by graduates of this program, the College of Education recommends for certification only those students demonstrating the academic preparation, emotional stability, physical stamina, and professionalism required of successful teachers. To ensure that our graduates meet these high standards, each must be admitted into the program through the Teacher Education Program: Admission and Retention (TEPAR) Committee and must achieve the goals set by the program. The TEPAR Committee oversees acceptance into the program and monitors each student's progress during the program. Students not yet admitted to the Teacher Education Program may not enroll in any 300- or 400-level courses in Education with the exception of ESL 401, 402, 403, 404, ED 481 and 484. Admission to the program through the TEPAR Committee is required for students in the Alternate Certification Program, as well as for undergraduates majoring in teacher education.
