Students enrolled in the teacher certification program will receive priority placement in courses that are part of the program. The department expects all pre-service teacher candidates to exhibit professional behavior in all education course and field settings. Students who fail to complete the required field work hours or receive an unsatisfactory evaluation for any education course may be subject to a grade reduction. The department requires students to student teach through Muhlenberg College in order to be certified by Muhlenberg College. Additionally, the Education Department may not accept education courses transferred from other institutions which do not include an appropriate and comparable field work component.
A non-refundable fee of $35.00 will be charged for each course in which a student is enrolled in a course or courses requiring fieldwork. Students enrolling in EDU 950 - Student Teaching I and EDU 951 - Student Teaching II will pay a special fee of $400.00. This fee is non-refundable and due when the student applies for student teaching in January of the junior year.
