Teacher Advisement & Field Placement Office
The Teacher Advisement and Field Placement Office (TAFP) serves all candidates enrolled in Teacher Education programs across campus. This office is responsible for regularly scheduled group advisement meetings held throughout each academic year (Admissions seminar, Student Teaching orientation, and Student Teaching seminar). In these meetings, candidates are specifically coached regarding admittance, retention, and exit policies, as well as various application procedures and deadlines associated with MSU's Teacher Education program and certification. Office members are available for candidates on an individual basis to answer questions related to their progress through the Teacher Education program. In addition to advisement, the office is responsible for coordination of all Teacher Education field-based experiences in partnership with the schools, including practicum arrangements and student teaching placements.
