If you have had an approved withdrawal from demonstration teaching (DT) and wish to apply for reinstatement in a future cohort, you may submit an email request within 12 months to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include the following information:
If additional information is required, the Teacher Success team will contact you accordingly.
The Teacher Success team will review your appeal and respond to you within 15 business days after all information is received. Note: The appeal through TS approves (or denies) you the opportunity to participate in a DT cohort again. If your appeal is approved, you must apply for a cohort through Field Placement during the next available application window and meet all application and academic requirements for DT. You will not be eligible for an upcoming cohort if you have missed application deadlines or have been withdrawn from WGU for more than a year. You must also repeat, and fully participate in, all aspects of the cohort seminar, even if it was previously passed.
Your appeal may be conditionally approved. That means that you must meet additional conditions before you receive full approval which may include a phone or webcam interview.
If your appeal is denied and you wish to appeal the denial, you may submit a written appeal to the Teacher Success manager at email@example.com.
Note: Students may repeat DT only one time after a previous fail. If the second DT is failed, you will be counseled out of your program into a non-licensure program.
