Candidates for secondary education, childhood education or bilingual childhood education certification are required to take one semester of student teaching. The Application for Student Teaching must be filed in the Office of Clinical Practice during the first ten weeks of the candidate’s lower senior term. Since the New York City Department of Education needs information in advance for the placement of student teachers, late applications cannot be considered. Deadline dates should be verified in the Office of Clinical Practice, Fieldwork & Student Teaching, NA 6/207A, each semester or online at https://www.ccny.cuny.edu/education/clinical_practice . The New York City Department of Education requires fingerprinting for fieldwork and student teaching placements.
