Teacher Residency

Fall 2024 Application and Deadlines for a Teacher Residency

Application Opens: January 18th @ noon
Applications Due: February 1st @ 5pm  extended to February 14th

Notifications of placement determinations will be sent to applicants prior to the traditional block application open date of February 16 so that those students not assigned to a residency can proceed with applying for a traditional field-based block. 

Select the appropriate link below depending on your degree plan; NOTE: there is currently not a residency option for students seeking Middle Level teacher certification. 

Placement Options

Elementary and Special Education students will be asked on the application to indicate a school district preference; see the chart below for what those options include but note that placements are limited so, if selected, you may be assigned to a different placement than what you initially requested.
