Any decisions regarding potential refunds for housing or dining fees will be made by the UNC System after April 1, or after the universities are beyond the immediate challenges being faced regarding the spread of COVID-19.
- The S/U grade will not carry grade points and will not impact your GPA.
- A grade of S will be assigned by the course instructor when the work is judged to be of C- quality or better.
- A grade of S will fulfill degree requirements, C-wall requirements, and prerequisites for future courses.
- A grade of U will not earn credit and will not affect a student’s GPA, though it will be used in Satisfactory Academic Progress calculations.
Students will have the option of switching to this S/U grading basis until May 8th, which is after the semester has ended and most grades have been submitted. We suggest students consult with their adviser and/or instructor before making this change, as it cannot be reversed. To read more about these options, click here for a statement from Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost, Warwick Arden.
The Student Teaching experience, as designed, includes approximately 19 weeks or more depending on your specific program, over the course of two semesters. This exceeds the 16-week minimum stated in North Carolina law. Should schools return to session before the end of NC State’s semester, we would encourage those of you who feel comfortable doing so to return to student teaching. However, should you be unable to return to your placement for any reason, including health concerns, you will need to notify the Office of Professional Education as soon as possible. In addition, we remain in contact with accreditation and licensure agencies to come up with creative solutions to support you if schools are closed for more than 3 weeks. If schools move to remote learning during school closures, you should work with your cooperating teacher from a distance to support their efforts. You are not expected to lead instruction.If you need support for assisting your Cooperating Teacher with remote learning efforts, our METRC librarians are available to assist you.
Candidates must have a completed N.C. Certificate of Teaching Capacity (NC CTC) form for licensure. More will be shared about this process at a later date.
edTPA is not required for program completion, but is part of our program practice and required of all candidates to clear their North Carolina license. All students who have gathered all of their video and artifacts should submit those items by the due date stated by their program. If you are unsure if you will be able to meet this deadline, please communicate immediately with your university supervisor and program coordinator. There will be options for students who are teaching in virtual environments to complete the edTPA. Once those options have been finalized, we will post them to the edTPA website.
During this time of school closures, we encourage you to study for your licensure exams if you have not already completed and passed them. For North Carolina Licensure Testing Requirements see LICN-003.
The college requires Professional Growth Units (PGUs) for licensure (4.5 for undergraduates and 2 for MAT). Some planned PGUs are being canceled or postponed, while others are moving online. Please continue to check SAGE and the PGU website for updates on PGUs available online. In addition, if you engage in professional learning online through other organizations, please track that so that you can receive credit. For questions about PGUs, please contact Kirsten Hoeflaken.
Given Chancellor Woodson’s announcement March 17 that NC State is moving to fully online instruction and taking other steps to help mitigate the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19), all early field experiences in P-12 schools are discontinued effective immediately. This means that anyone who is currently placed in a school for a course other than for student teaching should NOT return to their placement. Your course instructor will contact you with instructions for successful completion of individual courses and requirements.
