Directed Teaching Clearance Requests- Directed teaching guidelines require a student
to submit all paperwork one year prior to the semester in which the student plans
to complete this course. Therefore, requests for a directed student teaching clearance
must be made within that time frame so that this may be attached to your completed
application. Failure to do so will cause you to forfeit your right to complete directed
teaching as planned. This request needs to be made in writing to the Graduate Program
Graduation Clearances must be requested at least one semester prior to the semester you plan on graduating. Failure to do so will cause you to forfeit your opportunity to graduate during the requested semester. This request must be made in writing to the Graduate Program Coordinator. LizaIng@ferris.edu
