College of Education Interns can access information regarding FTCE or the USF Testing Services site for Fall 2018 test deadlines and registration information. Interns must pass both FTCE subject and professional area tests prior to completing their final internship and graduating in December 2018. A copy of your passing FTCE subject and professional area tests scores must be received by your Academic Advisor in the Student Academic Services Office, EDU 106 by 5:00 p.m. the Friday prior to commencement.
Any intern who does not submit passing FTCE Professional and Subject Area Exam scores to their Academic Advisor in the Student Academic Services Office, EDU 106 by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 7, 2018 will not be cleared to graduate. Subsequently, students will only be cleared to officially graduate when passing scores are submitted and received by your Academic Advisor in the Student Academic Services Office. It takes several weeks to receive your official FTCE test scores. Please make sure to register so that you have enough time to receive your passing FTCE scores by the December 7, 2018 deadline.
