Student Teaching and the Professional Semester
The requirement of credit hours in student teaching is 12. The semester that involves mostly student teaching and corresponding professional courses is known as the "Senior Professional Semester." Students and advisers must plan ahead and reserve designated professional courses and other courses arranged to facilitate student teaching for that semester.
All students registered for student teaching must take EDUC 456 concurrently with student teaching. All students completing student teaching through Olivet must meet the standards of the University's Teacher Education program entrance and student teaching admission requirements, including passing the Illinois Subject Matter test prior to the first day of student teaching.
