Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences

Progression Requirements

Progression to the ASL Education concentration (Undergraduate Internship Program) requires a 2.75 cumulative GPA after a minimum of 15 semester hours of coursework and completion of ASL 211 *. Once candidates formally progress to the specialization, they must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.75 while in the program. Students must earn a grade of B or better in ASL 211 *, ASL 212 *, ASL 311 *, and ASL 310 , and a C or better in all teacher education courses. Students with less than a 2.75 GPA for two consecutive semesters will be dropped from the program. Students who fail to meet the standards for professional conduct during the course of their fieldwork will not be retained in the major.

Coursework will allow students to obtain an ASL education license (Pre K-12) at the conclusion of the program. With the selection of a secondary content area as Professional Electives, students begin preparation in a secondary licensure area (7-12), which may be added through additional praxis exams or enrollment in a subsequent graduate certificate program.

uTrack Requirements

Universal Tracking (uTrack) is an academic monitoring system designed to help students stay on track for timely graduation. In order to remain on track, students must complete the minimum requirements for each tracking semester, known as milestones. Milestones include successful completion of specified courses and/or attainment of a minimum GPA. uTrack requirements only affect full-time, degree-seeking students.
