This course of study is for students seeking only teacher certification. Certification only students complete a planned program that leads to a College of Education recommendation to the Professional Standards Commission for certification K-12 as a teacher of Special Education: Adapted Curriculum. The focus of the coursework is students with moderate, severe, and profound mental retardation.
COURSE OF STUDY
Your individual course of study is recorded on the Planned Program Form. The Planned Program Form you fill out with your advisor is the official list of courses you will take in order to meet certification requirements. Following initial advisement you will receive in the mail a copy that has your signature, your advisor's signature, and the department chairperson's signature.
The first four courses listed below may be credited by prior coursework or approved equivalent. Any changes to the courses indicated on the Planned Program Form must be approved in advance by your advisor. A revised planned program form will have to be written, signed, and sent to the Office of Academic Assistance so that it is available for your final audit of coursework in your planned certification program by that office.
