If you wish to appeal for an exception to a published policy within the Field Experiences Handbook and/or wish to appeal an academic requirement associated with Teachers College program requirements, you may partner with your program mentor to submit an appeal using this form.
Program mentors will complete this form in partnership with their student. Teachers College program managers will review each appeal received with senior Teachers College leadership, and then communicate a decision on each appeal to the program mentor and student within typically two weeks.
Please understand that all state licensure and certification requirements will be factored when considering each exception request. Similarly, all state approval requirements and accreditation guidelines will be factored when considering each request. Protecting the value and integrity of our Teachers College programs is vital to the academic and professional success of our current and future students and graduates. The decision of the Teachers College is final.
Note: Students applying for late entry into a Demonstration Teaching (DT) cohort after the application window has closed must use this form to receive approval for late entry. If late entry is approved, students must contact Field Placement at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive further instructions and will be expected to arrange their own DT placement with support from their Placement Coordinator.
