COVID-19: News and campus updates | University policies and resources

UNC will be operating on a normal schedule Tuesday, Oct. 27. Read more details at: emergency.unco.edu

In light of Campus closure regarding COVID-19, employees in the college of Education and Behavioral Sciences are working remotely and faculty are teaching classes virtually in an effort to best support our campus community. We ask for your patience as some services may be limited and response time may increase. We appreciate your understanding as we prioritize health and safety. Updates will be published to UNC's COVID-19 information page as the situation develops.


Information for current students and academic advisors.

What are the checkpoints?

Checkpoint courses (if you started before Fall 2018)/Canvas shells (if you started Fall 2018 or later) are required for all education majors to move forward through your Professional Teacher Education Program (PTEP).  The checkpoints may consist of a mandatory meeting and/or a paper packet of forms.  Please work with your advisor to determine how you should enroll.  You will utilize your Canvas shell to obtain instructions on how to complete the Checkpoints.  However, failure to pass courses in a timely manner will prevent students from registering for other courses and progressing through Teacher Education programs.

Why Do I Need To Complete A Checkpoint

Please select your appropriate program below and then the checkpoint you are enrolled in.  You will need to print the checklist for your program and return it along with the other required documentation to McKee 216 by the due date provided in Canvas.  When a specific form is required, a link to the form is provided for each checkpoint area, within your program. Thank you.

error Note: Many courses have checkpoint courses as prerequisites; please refer to the catalog.
