Students in the Luther College Teacher Education Program need to submit a petition for anything "outside" the normal requirements to be eligible for licensure.
Examples of what would require a petition are:
The petition is written, edited and reviewed by the student before submission to Jennifer Lynne Olufsen. The petition is written in the format of a formal letter to the Education Department. Students may request several items with one petition. However, they should be itemized in the petition and will be reviewed separately. Applicable course descriptions/syllabi should be included when the petition is submitted. In the case of a course by arrangement, students should discuss the arrangement with the professor before submitting the petition. Advisors must review the petition before it is submitted.
Note: Petitions must be submitted and approved before tickets are purchased, or activities/outside commitments are planned.
Also, The petition must be accompanied by the Petition Cover/Tracking Sheet. The Department meets one time per month and petitions must be turned in by a specific deadline to be considered:
|No petitions are reviewed in January|
|No petitions are considered after May 1|
