Retention and Advanced Standing
(Undergraduate Level)

Students in art education who expect to meet Ohio’s licensure requirements must apply for advanced standing by the end of their first semester junior year. To apply, students must submit to the art education faculty information about grade point average, written personal goals, three faculty recommendations, self-analysis of program progress up to the point of evaluation, and have an interview with the program director. Art education faculty may (1) accept a student for advanced standing; (2) accept a student with reservation, with a remedial plan; or (3) reject a student and recommend a career change. To enter student teaching, a 2.5 cumulative University grade point average is required, a 3.0 cumulative G.P.A. average in professional education courses, and a total of 300 contact hours of clinical field based experience acquired in a variety of settings as required by the State of Ohio. Fingerprinting for a criminal background check by the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Identification is required. For students who have not lived in Ohio consecutively for the past five years, a background check through the Federal Bureau of investigation is also required.

To be recommended by the university’s director of teacher licensure for State Teacher Licensure, a 3.0 cumulative G.P.A. must be maintained in all professional education courses. An overall G.P.A. of 2.5 must be maintained. The Ohio Department of education requires passing scores on the Praxis II Principles
of Learning and Teaching and Art Content Knowledge exams in addition to the requirements stated above. Completion of the Bachelor of Science degree exists separately from the assurance that State of Ohio Visual Art Teacher Licensure will be awarded. Additional information on this program is available in the office of the director of art education.
