EHHS General

The non-degree EHHS General category is intended for students who are exploring programs in EHHS and are not yet ready to declare a major or do not meet the criteria for their intended major. Because a degree cannot be earned while in EHHS General, it is important that students declare a major before earning 45 credit hours to facilitate timely progress toward a degree. Students will not be permitted to continue in EHHS General after accumulating 45 credit hours.

Professional Dispositions for Teacher Candidates

Professional dispositions are the professional attitudes, values, and beliefs demonstrated through both verbal and non-verbal behaviors as educators interact with students, families, colleagues, faculty, and communities. The teacher education faculty believe that the following dispositions support student learning and development. Therefore teacher candidates are expected to demonstrate:

  • Fairness by striving to meet the educational needs of all students in a caring, non-discriminatory, and equitable manner
  • Belief that all students can learn
  • Responsibility
  • Professionalism

These dispositions are assessed at least three times in a candidate’s program:

  • Education in a Democratic Society course,
  • a methods course with a field component, and
  • student teaching.

In addition, a disposition assessment may be completed by a faculty member at any time a situation calls for it.  A candidate may not progress through the teacher education program unless evidence shows that progress toward meeting them is underway. By the completion of student teaching, all disposition standards must be rated as acceptable.

Professional Education Warning

Professional Education Warning for teacher licensure programs and Community Health Education major students in teacher licensure programs and the Community Health Education major must have a minimum 2.75 GPA to progress in their programs and ultimately graduate. Unless other factors are present, students who do not meet the prescribed conditions are required to transfer out of their declared major. An appeal of this decision is directed to the associate dean of undergraduate student services, College of Education, Health and Human Services, 304 White Hall.

Background Checks for Teacher Licensure Candidates

For field experience, student teaching and any culminating internship in teacher education that requires candidates to be placed within a school or agency ("school/agency") setting, the college requires candidates to complete Bureau of Criminal Investigation and Identification (BCII) and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) background check and submit the results to authorized personnel at their assigned school/agency before the beginning of the field experience or the first day of the semester in which the student teaching/internship will take place. Authorized school/agency personnel will determine whether a candidate may participate in fieldwork in that setting. The BCII and FBI background checks are good for one year and are mandatory for licensure application. Electronic fingerprinting is available for BCII and FBI in 221 White Hall and should be completed at least two months prior to field experience/student teaching/culminating internship. Regional campus students should contact their Regional Campus coordinator to identify fingerprinting availability at each campus. Candidates are responsible for fees incurred for this requirement. For more information on this policy, contact the Director of Clinical Field Experience in 304 White Hall. Visit the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) website at www.ode.state.oh.us for more information about background check requirements for educators in Ohio. Contact the Office of Professional Conduct at the ODE for specific information about the results of the background check.

Student Teaching

Application for student teaching is completed online through the College of Education, Health and Human Services' student portal. Students will be required to complete the application during specified windows posted on the Vacca Office of Student Services' (VOSS) website. Application windows will typically be accessible during the months of October and November in the fall semester and March and April in the spring semester. Failure to complete the application and submit the prerequisite training documents within the designated time frame may delay the student teaching placement. Depending on the program area, students will apply either 2 or 3 semesters prior to their anticipated student teaching semester. Students should meet with their academic advisor for details on which semester to apply.

Once the application is submitted, VOSS staff will determine eligibility by reviewing coursework, GPA, disposition assessments, and other program area requirements (as specified in catalog). Students should meet with their faculty and/or academic advisor in VOSS for any clarifications. Written notification of eligibility will be emailed to each applicant.

Those eligible for student teaching are required to attend a mandatory meeting where additional information about student teaching is provided. Failure to attend this meeting may result in a delay of student teaching. Placement forms, distributed at this meeting, need to be completed by the deadline.  

The Clinical Experience Office will make the final decision about the placement site for the Kent Campus. Placement decisions at the Regional Campuses are made by the designated placement officer at each campus. Candidates are not to contact schools or potential mentors directly to make their own arrangements. Placements are generally made within a 50 mile radius of Kent State University. Student teaching is a full-time commitment and candidates are expected to follow the schedule of the cooperating teacher.

Education Licensure Application

Students in the teacher education programs must apply for State of Ohio Licensure within 12 months of program completion (defined by completion of all licensure program requirements) . After 12 months, applicants must meet State approved program/licensure requirements that are in effect at the time of application. This means that students who apply after the 12 month deadline may have to take additional coursework if the content, methods courses, program requirements, or Ii censure requirements have changed from the catalog in force.

If a student does not apply for their license within 6 years, they are subject to any additional state licensure requirements and are also subject to additional coursework based on changes in areas such as content, age of coursework and changes in program requirements. A minimum of 9 credit hours will be required to apply for licensure after 6 years of program completion.

Admission GPA for Undergraduate Students

For admissions, the College of Education, Health and Human Services considers a student to have established a Kent State University GPA after the student has successfully completed a minimum of 12 Kent State University credit hours. Undergraduate students who have not completed a minimum of 12 Kent State University credit hours will be evaluated for admission into programs, Advanced Study, and the Professional phase based on their high school GPA for new freshmen, or transfer GPA for transfer students. Once a student has successfully completed a minimum of 12 Kent State University credit hours, only the student’s Kent State cumulative GPA will be considered for admission into a program, Advanced Study, and Professional Phase.

Undergraduate Graduation Requirements

  • Teacher licensure program majors and minors must earn a minimum C grade in all professional coursework.
  • All education majors must have a minimum C grade in all major/concentration coursework.
  • A minimum 2.500 content GPA is required for all Education minors.
  • No more than 4 credit hours in physical education basic (PEB) activity courses are permitted toward graduation.
  • A maximum of 4 semester credit hours earned in variable-titled workshop may be applied to an undergraduate degree program. Identical workshop topics that are repeated for credit will not count towards graduation requirements. All workshops are graded S/U (satisfactory/unsatisfactory). Some program areas may be more restrictive. Students are advised to consult their program regarding application of workshop credit toward degree requirements.

To see graduation requirements for a specific program, please select a major from the undergraduate program listing.

Requirements for Admission to Advanced Study

Admission to advanced study is required of all teacher education majors and minors prior to enrolling in upper-division education courses. Upon completion of coursework as determined by program area, students should have satisfied the prerequisites for admission to advanced study. Students must submit an application for advanced study by the second Friday of the term during which all prerequisites for advanced study will be completed, and at least one semester prior to beginning any coursework for which "Admission to Advanced Study" is a prerequisite. Students at the Kent Campus apply for Advanced Study through the College of Education, Health and Human Services Student Portal which can be accessed through the Vacca Office of Student Services web page. Students completing a licensure program at a regional campus should check with that campus for instructions on how to apply for "Advanced Study." Students in teacher education majors and minors must be officially admitted to advanced study to take upper-division professional coursework.

Please note: Admission to advanced study is required for students pursuing an undergraduate major that leads to teacher licensure, with the exception of Trade and Industrial Education majors who obtained initial licensure through the Alternative Resident Educator Licensure Program (teachers recruited from business and industry).
