The Office of Teacher Services is committed to helping education majors complete their programs to become certified teachers in a timely and efficient manner. The personnel in this office are here to assist with admission to teacher education, with prompt and informed advisement for all elementary and middle grades majors, with the placement and supervision of all field experiences and student teachers, and with the application process for teacher certification and advanced degrees. In order to complete both field experiences and student teaching, students are required to submit a physical and TB test (pdf) and Kentucky State Police criminal background check. In addition, we are dedicated to Minority Recruitment efforts and to their identified programs that are housed in our office.

The Office of Teacher Services is located in Gary A. Ransdell Hall, Room 2052, and is open during the normal operating hours of the University. Our hours are 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during the regular academic year and from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. in the summer. General information is available on walk-in basis. You will find a friendly and helpful staff willing to assist in any way we can. If you have specific questions, office staff can be reached at 270-745-4897.
