Standard Teacher Certification

Notwithstanding the fact that a candidate has been retained in teacher education to the point of

completing all academic requirements, University recommendation for certification is contingent

upon evidence of having fulfilled all requirements and standards of the HSU teacher education

program. This is determined by a final review of the candidate’s complete record as concerns: (1)

academic record, (2) student teaching or internship, (3) professional ethics, and (4) passing the

state-mandated credentialing exam.

No student is eligible to be recommended for certification if he/she has a grade of D or

unsatisfactory in his/her teaching field or in any course in pedagogy and professional development.

Application for certification must be made through the office of the University Certification

Officer, Irvin School of Education. It is the responsibility of the student to file a request for a

teaching certificate. All certification requirements are subject to TEA/SBEC standards, rules, and

regulations.
