Self-Withdrawal: Not Approved

Under no circumstances may you terminate your placement once it has started without irreversible consequences. In short, you may not simply quit demonstration teaching (DT) once you begin. If you do so, you will fail DT and you will not be eligible for a future cohort or allowed to submit an appeal to repeat DT. In such instances, you may also be recommended for removal from the licensure program, Teachers College, or the University via a Level 3 Warning.

 

If you are considering terminating your placement, you must first contact the Teacher Success team at 866-889-0132, option 4 or teachersuccess@wgu.edu to discuss possible options and allow Teacher Success to support you in this placement. Please do not discuss ending your placement with your host teacher or clinical supervisor, as this can negatively affect your DT placement. Allow Teacher Success the opportunity to support you so you can successfully complete the placement and DT.

 

If you’ve discussed the repercussions and options with Teacher Success and you decide not to work with the alternatives and support offered, and you ultimately terminate your own placement anyway, the consequences are the same: you will be removed from the cohort, you will fail DT and you will not be eligible for a future cohort or allowed to submit an appeal to repeat DT. In such instances, you may also be recommended for removal from the licensure program, Teachers College, or the University via a Level 3 Warning.
