If a student’s overall GPA falls below 2.75 the student will be removed from the program and must improve the GPA and reapply for admission. Students who receive an F in any course in the professional education sequence or major, the student must retake the course when it is offered and earn a grade C or better. Students who fail any required major course twice are withdrawn from the major. Students who do not successfully complete internship may be withdrawn from the program and become ineligible for licensure. 

Admission to the Professional Education Sequence in Inclusive Education

Students in the Professional Education must be admitted to the Teacher Education Program and are subject to all the teacher education requirements. EDCI 201 is the only course in the professional education sequence that may be taken before admission to teacher education.

 Continuation in the Inclusive Education Program

To continue in the program, students must meet the continuation requirements of the Teacher Education Program .  Inclusive education majors are required to maintain a 2.75 in the major and to earn a “C” or better in all courses required in the major.  Students who earn a grade below a “C” in a required course or whose GPA in the major falls below 2.75 will not be permitted to enroll in SPED 312, SPED 423 or SPED 484.  Any dismissal from a field experience or internship will result in a grade lower than a C and will make the teacher candidate ineligible for licensure.
