What if I can't get into the class I want?
From time to time, courses in the teacher education program reach capacity. Decisions regarding overload admittances are made by the department Chair, not the individual course instructor.
If you are interested in being put on a waiting list, please email Kim Slette (email@example.com) with the following information:
- Name and Banner ID number
- Course name, number and CRN number
- Reason for needing to get into that course for that semester/block
- Cell phone number where you can be reached
You will be placed on the official waiting list for that course/those courses if you meet GPA, course, and programmatic requirements.
Two weeks after the beginning of registration, the Department of Education will review any waiting lists and
- Assure that all registered students are eligible to register for education courses (GPA and other retention policies have been met)
- Remove students that are registered for courses and are not eligible after they have been notified by phone or in writing
- The chair of the department will review the waiting lists and will place students with the most essential scheduling issues in the courses, space permitting
- If you are unable to be enrolled in an education course due to capacity enrollment, you will meet with the chair of the department to go over your four-year plan to ensure your ability to complete education requirements in a timely manner
What if I want to teach in a state other than Minnesota?
Concordia College prepares students for licensure in Minnesota upon graduation. It is highly recommended that you apply for a license in Minnesota even if you do not plan to teach here for a couple of reasons:
- Other states may grant you a reciprocal license or temporary license due to your MN license.
- If given a temporary or provisional license, you will be given a time period to complete additional requirements that particular state may have.
- You may want to substitute teach and earn money while looking for another position.
Each state has it's own requirements for licensure. Click here to go to the Council of Chief State School Officers web site, which has links to all state licensing agencies.
