Students are permitted to enroll in other classes only with the
consent of the Department Chair. The semester of student
teaching is divided into four types of activities: observing,
assisting, teaming, and teaching. Student teachers become
involved with children as rapidly as possible, and gradually
assume a full responsibility for the classroom to which they have
been assigned. As the experience draws to an end, the process
should be reversed and supervising teachers take back their
classes at convenient program breaks.

5. Foreign Language Requirements                         (0-8 hrs)
State University System foreign language admission
requirement: two years in high school or one year of college
instruction in a single foreign language. (This requirement
applies to those students admitted to the University without the
required two units of foreign language in high school.)

6. Departmental Exit Requirements
• Achieve a minimum 2.5 GPA in all courses within the major.
• Complete a portfolio according to program guidelines. This
    portfolio requires demonstration of professional growth,
    reflection, and proficiency in the 12 Florida Educator
    Accomplished Practices.
• Pass the Professional Education and Subject Area subtests of
    the Florida Teacher Certification Examination.

7.   University Minimum Exit Requirements
•    A 2.0 UCF GPA
•    60 semester hours earned after CLEP awarded
•    48 semester hours of upper division credit completed
•    30 semester hours in regular courses completed at UCF
•    Complete the General Education Program, the Gordon Rule,
       the CLAST and nine hours of Summer credit (if applicable)

8. Total Semester Hours Required              To be determined

Transfer Notes:
Courses transferred from private and out-of-state schools must
be evaluated for equivalency credit. The student must provide
all supporting information. Students transferring from a Florida
Public Community College are cautioned to pay careful
attention to the General Education and Common Program
Prerequisites sections because the revision of State Board of
Education Rule 6A-5.066 has made programs highly
prescriptive, which may result in additional coursework to
satisfy degree requirements.
