Admissions and Standards Committee

The Admissions and Standards Committee (A&S) is comprised of Department of Teacher Education faculty.  One of the most important functions the Admissions and Standards Committee performs is the review of petitions submitted by MSCP students.  Examples of petitions typically reviewed by A&S include petitions to submit a student teaching application or program application after the deadline or petition to be readmitted to student teaching.  Petitions are not limited to these examples.
