If your application is complete and you can be conditionally or unconditionally admitted to the TEP, you will be notified by a letter of admission delivered via U.S. mail.
Once unconditionally admitted, you must complete an expanded criminal history check, which requires a fingerprinting appointment through MorphoTrust. You will need to make sure that the results are sent electronically to the Division of Education for your academic file.
- For fall Block I, criminal history checks must be completed by the first day of fall classes.
- For spring Block I, criminal history checks must be completed by the first day of spring classes.
Additionally, you will need to complete a Department of Child Services (DCS) check form. We will provide you with this form prior to the start of classes. You will need to provide the information requested and return it to the Division of Education Office for processing.
Schools used for field placements and student teaching require that a current criminal history check and DCS check for all TEP students be on file.
We are not responsible for disruptions to your studies or ability to complete program requirements due to the decisions of schools regarding your placement based on the results of your criminal history and/or DCS check.
