1. Students are required to earn a C or better in all Professional Development courses2
  2. Students may appeal to have Professional Development courses2 waived.
  3. Students are required to have a KU+Transfer GPA of 2.50 before enrolling in C&T 360. If a student receives special permission from a UKanTeach advisor to enroll in C&T 360 without the required GPA, he/she will have the semester in which C&T 360 is taken and the following fall or spring semester to raise his/her KU+Transfer GPA to at least a 2.50. If the student’s KU+Transfer GPA is not at least a 2.50 at the end of this time, the student will not be allowed to continue taking any UKanTeach field courses1.
  4. Students will not be permitted to take field courses1 concurrently unless an appeal is granted.
  5. KU+Transfer GPA and content area for licensure GPA of 2.50 is required before enrolling in C&T 500 and C&T 598. Students will also be required to have met all GPA minimums as required by their college or school for graduation. Courses for each licensure area that will be used to calculate content area for licensure GPA are listed on the following page. If a student’s department has used a different course(s) to count for one of the courses listed below, the calculation will be adjusted using the substituted course(s) [See Policy 7].
  6. All Professional Development courses2 are required before enrolling in C&T 500 and C&T 598. Courses exempt from this rule: MATH 197, MATH 409&410, C&T 359, C&T 448 and HIST 510.
  7. The Policy & Appeals Committee will honor any licensure subject course substitutions that are granted by the student’s academic department as long as all Kansas State Department of Education standards are still met across the student’s program of study.
  8. Any student participating in a UKanTeach Internship while student teaching must adhere to the following policies:
    • Student Teaching and coursework responsibilities take precedence over all UKanTeach Internship commitments.
    • Students have to have their schedule (student teaching, courses and work) approved by the Student Teacher Coordinator and a UKanTeach Advisor before starting work.
    • Students are not allowed to have a UKanTeach Internship at the same school where they are student teaching, and are limited to working 10 hours or less a week.

All policies will go into effect starting fall 2010. Students can expect any appeal to take 2-4 weeks to process.
