Teacher Education Program Checkpoints

The requirements of the Teacher Education Program are outlined in four checkpoints.  These checkpoints serve as a guideline for students throughout their program as they move towards licensure. 

In general, the checkpoints can be described as follows:

Checkpoint I: Admission to the Teacher Education Program

Checkpoint II: Teacher Education Program Progress

Checkpoint III: Admission to Student Teaching

Checkpoint IV: Licensure Requirements

Specific checkpoint requirements are dependent on which catalog/academic year that you began with Buena Vista University.  The following documents will identify the requirements of the checkpoints for your program.   If you are unsure of your program catalog, please contact your advisor.
