Policy on Expectations for Students Admitted to Alternate Route to Teacher Certification MAT Programs
At the time of admission to an Alternate Route to Teacher Certification MAT program, students will be expected to sign a document to signify their understanding of and agreement to abide by the following expectations:
- The student must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0. If the semester GPA drops below 3.0, the student may be dropped from the program or, with evidence of extenuating circumstances and at the discretion of the program faculty, the student may be allowed to remain on a probationary status. If the student’s GPA falls below 3.0 for a second time, the student will be dropped from the program.
- The student must be continuously enrolled (Fall, Spring, and Summer terms), completing a minimum of 3 hours per term unless prior approval of the program advisor is obtained. Regardless of hours completed in any given semester, the student must complete all degree requirements within three years from the date of the notice of eligibility to be issued the initial temporary provisional certificate.
- In addition to satisfactory academic achievement, the student must demonstrate acceptable professional behavior in all school settings.
