All students applying for admission to the post-baccalaureate internship year are required to submit a formal, and fairly extensive, application for admission to a degree program (typically the M.Ed.) and for admission to the internship year. This is necessary because the School of Education is obligated to complete a thorough academic and professional assessment of all students before it can place them in a class and school setting for a full year internship.
This formal admission and review process occurs at the second transition point in the program because the School of Education is obligated to complete a thorough academic and professional assessment of all students before it can place them in a class and school setting for a full year internship. It is the responsibility of the School of Education to make every effort it can to confirm that the students it is recommending as interns have the knowledge, skills and disposition necessary to be successful in classroom, school and community settings that have students, teachers, and parents from very diverse racial, ethnic, cultural, linguistic, socioeconomic and geographic backgrounds. Students will receive notification of admission to the Internship Year in April, and they will receive information about their school and classroom placement from the director of the Office of Fieldwork Experiences on (or before) July 15th.
If you have questions about any of the admission requirements or about completion of the forms, please be sure to contact one of the School of Education Elementary Coordinators. Please arrange to meet with, or have a phone conversation with one of the faculty long before submitting your application. Contact the Elementary Licensure program coordinators to make arrangements at (907) 474-7981 or email Kelly Mendez at firstname.lastname@example.org.
