Teacher Education Program

Students applying to the Teacher Education Program (TEP) must first be admitted to the University. You will be required to meet the admissions requirements and standards that are in effect at the time before you begin the admission and application process to the TEP. You should check with your advisor for current information and always refer to the TEP Handbook.


After review of your portfolio, you may be selected for interview into the TEP program. The interview committee will complete assessments of your portfolio and how you perform during your interview.


A TEP Orientation Session will take place with a College of Education advisor.  Please contact your advisor to schedule your TEP orientation. Once recommended for admission to the program by your interview committee, you must complete a face-to-face TEP Orientation Session before you can register for TEP- restricted courses. During the orientation session you will learn more about continuing and completing your academic program at MSU and obtaining your teacher certification. You will also take a brief survey about diversity and sign a checklist verifying that you understand what is expected of you in order to complete your clinical practice semester and graduate ready to teach.
