Important Notice about Certification:

 The state of Georgia will require that anyone participating in any course requiring a field experience, where the candidate will enter a public or charter school, must hold a Pre-Service Certification.  This requirement will impact all courses requiring field experience beyond education foundation courses (EDUC 2110, 2120 & 2130). 

Candidates admitted to the Bagwell College of Education must complete and submit to the Education Student Services office two forms in order to obtain the required Pre-Service Certification.  The Education Student Services office is located in Kennesaw Hall, Suite 1314.  Failure to submit a completed packet, in a timely manner, may result in a candidates inability to complete field experience hours required in a course for which they are registered.
