Program Information

SSCP clinical practice is a full year (2 semester) commitment, regardless of pathway (student teacher, teacher-of-record, or potentially employed).  Students accepted into the Single Subject Credential Program are allowed to begin their clinical practice experience during the 1st program semester. A Placement Application is required for all credential candidates regardless of program or pathway. Clearance by the Office of Field Services is necessary to proceed with the placement process whether employed, non-employed, or potentially employed. Visit the Clinical Practice page for more information. 

  • The Placement Application is separate from the Graduate School/Credential Program application.
