Admission to Teacher Education Window Appeal

Some Teacher Education Candidates may not meet their Admission Window and miss their chance to earn an Admission to Teacher Education.  In these cases, the Teacher Education Candidates may file an appeal for a one-semester extension.  Extensions are only given if the Teacher Education Candidate can document why Cal U is responsible for the Teacher Education Candidate missing the Admission Window.

The Appeal Process

It is the candidate's responsibility to start the appeal process by completing the Appeal to Extend the Admission Window by One Semester form.  Candidates must submit their appeal to their department office by due dates shown in the table below. To fulfill the requirements of the appeal, students must apply for Admission to Teacher Education by the due dates given in the table below. Failure to apply for Admission to Teacher Education by the published dates will result in the student NOT being able to complete an education degree at Cal U and therefore they will need to change their major immediately to a program other than teacher education.
