The requesting university shall:

  • Complete the WKU Visiting Student Teacher Application Word
  • Acknowledge that the applicant is a student in good standing with the university and eligible to student teach.
  • Provide the Student Teaching Major / Subject
  • List the required student teaching time frame / a split placement or one assignment
  • Provide their Student Teaching Guidelines and Evaluation Forms to the WKU Student Teaching Office,  the WKU University Supervisor, the assigned Cooperating Teacher(s), and the student. The requesting university may opt to accept WKU’s Evaluation Forms.
