The College of Education plans, arranges, and supervises student teaching experiences at the elementary and secondary levels in public and private schools on O'ahu.

1. Enrollment in the College of Education as a classified student and completion of all course work;
2. Completion of the required foundations and methods courses with a grade of C or better;
3. A cumulative GPA of not less than that required for admission to the college;
4. For BEd in secondary education majors: A completed application for student teaching, verified by an academic adviser, submitted to the Department of Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies no later than

6. For BEd in secondary majors: An interview and recommendation by a designated teacher education personnel for assignment processing and/or referral to the student review committee;

Students should check with their academic adviser concerning specific requirements.
Extension, Correspondence, and 500-Level Course Credits
No graduate credit is allowed for extension or correspondence courses. All 500-level courses at UH Manoa are mandatory CR/NC and do not count towards fulfilling the requirements for any degree or certificate programs.
The College of Education offers MEd degrees in counseling and guidance, educational administration, educational foundations, educational psychology, educational technology, elementary education, secondary education, special education, and teaching. The MEd programs in elementary and secondary education are in the Department of Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies. The other MEd programs are under those specific departments.
The College of Education also offers the master of education in teaching (MEdT). The two-year, interdisciplinary, field-based program is designed for students who have earned baccalaureate degrees in fields other than education. Graduates are qualified for state teacher certification in either elementary or secondary education at the professional certificate level. MEdT students must be registered full-time and progress through the program in cohorts. See Educational Foundations for more information.
