Courtesy Placements

To accommodate our MAT teacher candidates who need to clinical teach elsewhere, the Office of Teacher Education and Clinical Practice will facilitate a limited number of clinical teaching placements outside the Greater Memphis and Jackson-Madison County areas each Fall and Spring semester. These placement requests are granted only for cases of documented need. Accepted reasons include, but are not limited to: online MAT candidate who lives outside the mid-south, job relocation of spouse and illness of a family member.

The Office of Teacher Education and Clinical Practice carefully considers each courtesy placement request and reserves the right to deny any requests not deemed necessary. Students requesting courtesy placements must have a 3.0 GPA and pass all Praxis II exams required for licensure in order to receive a courtesy placement.

Please identify your need for a courtesy placement on the Clinical Application > when you apply to Clinical Teach.
