All candidates are responsible to apply for internship placement by the published deadlines. DO NOT contact any teacher, school, or organization regarding any placement! Candidates cannot request a school where a spouse, significant other, child or relative attend or work. The application for internship can be found at https://petal.uaa.alaska.edu/public_docs/forms/sei1.pdf. Degree Works: Candidates can track their progress towards degree completion, track petitions and advising notes by using DegreeWorks through UAOnline Services. Background Check Requirements Information on background checks can be found under Field Placements located on the College of Education website at https://www.uaa.alaska.edu/coe/currentstudents/fieldexperiences/background-checks.cfm. Institutional Recommendation Following are the requirements for an institutional recommendation for a special education certificate or endorsement. The candidate must have: 1. Completed all applicable prerequisite courses with a minimum grade of B. Completed all required courses with a minimum overall GPA of 3.00, with no grade lower than a C. 2. Earned a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited institution, or foreign equivalent. 3. Completed internships and professional portfolio documenting attainment of CEC standards. 4. Passed applicable examinations. For candidates in Certification Route I, passing scores on the Praxis I, Praxis Core or other EED-approved basic skills examination, and the Praxis II are required. The passing scores are established by EED. Elementary special education teacher candidates must take one of the Praxis II examinations designated for elementary teachers. Secondary special education teacher candidates must take one of the Praxis II examinations in Mathematics, English, Science, or Social Studies. Alaska certification note: The institutional recommendation for an initial certificate with a special education endorsement (Certification Route I) will be at the level of the internship. The institutional recommendation for special education endorsement (Certification Route II) on an existing teaching certificate will be at the level of that certificate. EED may have additional requirements for certification/endorsement. For those graduates receiving an initial certificate (Certification Route I), prior to advancing to the professional certificate, EED requires completion of of approved Alaska studies coursework

9 and of approved multicultural/cross-cultural communications coursework. See the EED web site for more information: If you wish to proceed on to the MEd in Special Education you must apply to graduate with your Graduate Certificate by going to: Once you have applied to graduate with your Graduate Certificate then you may apply for the MEd in Special Education through UAA admissions and stop at the payment page and notify the department. You must also reapply to the Counseling and Special Education Department as a continuing Grad Cert student. Before graduating with your MEd in Special Education you also must apply for your Institutional Recommendation from the Graduate Certificate by going to this link: and following Step 1: Apply for an Institutional Recommendation (IR). Please be aware that an institutional recommendation is not processed until your program has been completed and your degree has been posted. ~Diplomas are printed at the end of each month. You will receive correspondence, through your student UAA account, when your diploma is ready for pick-up at Enrollment Management, One Stop Student Services in the University Center. If you are unable to pick up your diploma fill out the mail diploma form. ~When requesting your transcript, we recommend waiting until the Institutional Recommendation is completed in order to allow the posting of the NCATE accreditation notation. Ordering transcripts early will result in no CAEP accreditation notation, which is a requirement of the state. Check your unofficial transcript through UAOnline to see if the CAEP posting has been applied, then order an official transcript. Communications via The UA Student Gmail account is the university s preferred method of contacting candidates. Candidates can set their UA student Gmail account so that is forwarded to another account. It is the candidate s responsibility to forward their UA student Gmail account to another . Program Delivery Since the majority of graduate course work includes distance delivery by Blackboard (https://classes.uaa.alaska.edu) and Blackboard Collaborate web meetings, candidates will need access to the Internet and a headset with microphone. Candidates must have the technological knowledge and skills to engage in distance learning. Electronic Portfolios

10 TaskStream is a comprehensive web-based resource and storage system for students to collect, store and post work that will form the basis for an electronic portfolio, which is an exit requirement for most College of Education programs. Students are responsible for purchasing a subscription to TaskStream just as students are responsible for purchasing books. Students can purchase subscriptions to TaskStream directly from TaskStream at click on subscribe (across the top).
