Progression and Graduation Requirements
  • Due to the sensitive nature of working with children in the public schools, the Department of Public Safety at Augusta University will conduct a background review of all students at three specific points in the preparation program. The first check will be made as part of enrollment in EDUC 2110 - Investigating Critical and Contemporary Issues in Education (3 Credit Hours) . Only students who present a record free of criminal and/or disciplinary activity will be allowed to enter a public school classroom. The second check will be made as part of the admission to Teacher Education process. The third check will be made as a prerequisite to entering the student teaching experience. Students who are admitted to the student teaching experience must have a record free of criminal and/or disciplinary activity.
  • All employed MAT candidates must complete the edTPA assessment by the third semester (excluding summers) of the program. All other candidates will complete the edTPA assessment during student teaching.
