Decision Point 5: Graduation
Candidates will have successfully completed student teaching if they:
- Pass the Pennsylvania Statewide Evaluation Form for Student Professional Knowledge and Practice (PA-430 form) with a score of “1” or higher on each category;
- Receive a "Met" or higher rating on the Candidate Professional Disposition Instrument – Level 3 during Week 7 of student teaching; and
- Pass a departmental exit interview. Each department may have different requirements for the exit interview. Check with your department for details.
Once a candidate graduates, the GPA is permanent. Candidates cannot return to Cal U to retake courses to improve their undergraduate GPA after their graduation.
