FIELD EXPERIENCE & LICENSURE FAQ 2020

Thank you for reaching out with your questions. We also want to thank you for your patience during this rapidly evolving time.  We’re doing our best to keep you informed, working with all the organizations that are involved in your licensure, and that we, like you, are disappointed by how our worlds are being derailed by the pandemic. That said, becoming a great teacher is still an amazing and worthwhile pursuit and happily for all of us, you can still work toward that goal.

Your course instructors and program leaders are working to ensure that progress toward your degree will not be negatively impacted by the changes to the format of delivery of instruction for the remainder of this academic year.
