The three-step process is the approved process for all students who are pursuing degrees leading to being teachers. This process addresses the following:

  1. Applying to the Teacher Education program at IUP
  2. Proceeding to student teaching
  3. Being recommended for certification following graduation

Each of the three steps has requirements that are unique.

All Teacher Education majors should read the three-step process requirements and become familiar with them. Your academic advisor and program coordinator can assist you with questions, but the Teacher Education office is always glad to assist as well. Students are ultimately responsible for gathering and presenting the required documentation at each step of the three-step process.
