The Office of Education Advisement and Field Experience assigns Early Field Experience placements for students prior to their Student Teaching; and, subsequently, their Student Teaching Experience. One hundred hours of Early Field Experience is required to be admitted to student teach and this is embedded in required education course work. When qualified for Student Teaching, students register for this one semester course which is divided into two sessions. This office assesses applicants' eligibility to student teach. It then coordinates and places qualified students in New York schools for their student teaching experience and monitors their progress. Advisement is also offered to assist in meeting requirements in a timely manner. Non-Course requirements for entering the Professional Methods Sequences are listed on the drop-down menu at the left of this page under Office of Education Advisement and  Field Experience.  Just click on the link and it will take you to the information you are seeking. Professional Methods Sequences must be satisfactorily completed prior to student teaching.


Please check with this office for any updates before final decisions are made concerning your program.
