  • Submit an application for admission into the Teacher Education Program (TEP)
  • Have a 2.50 cumulative grade point average at the time of submission of application

Only after the completion of the above five items, will teacher candidates be allowed to proceed to 300-400- level education courses.  If you have not yet passed all four (4) subtests of the FTCE General Knowledge (GK) test, please go online (www.fl.nesinc.com) as soon as possible, to register and establish an account. This is important! Teacher candidates will only be allowed to proceed to register for junior and senior level education courses once documentation is furnished indicating that all four (4) parts of the GK test have been successfully passed.

In order to register for EDB 352 Teaching Practicum (Practicum B), students must be admitted to Upper Division and have successfully completed ED 352 Contemporary Teaching Methods and EDA 352 Contemporary Teaching Practicum (Practicum A) with a passing grade of C or better.

Documentation of passing scores on the FTCE General Knowledge (GK), Professional Education, and Subject Area exams must be submitted to the TEI office by September 30 to intern during the spring semester, or by February 1 to intern in the fall semester. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE!   Study materials, computerized test questions, and tutors are available to assist you. Limited funds are available through the TEI office to assist qualified students with the fees required to take the state FTCE exams.
