Morehead State University Teacher Education students completing approved programs are eligible to apply for a Kentucky Statement of Eligibility. The Eligibility Statement is required prior to employment in a school and participation in the Kentucky Teacher Internship Program.
Applications (TC-1 forms) are available in the Educational Service Unit, Certification Office, 801 Ginger Hall. These forms are distributed to clinical practice students during the final regularly scheduled MSU Clinical Practice Seminar. Completed forms should be submitted to the Certification Office prior to completion of the teaching program.
In order to adhere to Kentucky State Regulations, students must meet certification requirements in effect at the time of application. Advisors will be kept up to date with changes in State policies affecting University regulations. However, it is the students' responsibility to stay abreast of current requirements. Presently, certification requirements include successful completion of thePRAXIS Specialty Area Tests and the appropriate PRAXIS Principles of Learning and Teaching Test. Registration information for specialty tests, testing dates test preparation materials, and fee structures may be secured from the MSU Testing Center, 501 Ginger Hall. (First time certifications are free to Kentucky applicants.)
