Notice: Fingerprint Clearance
The following EDU courses require a field experience: EDU220, EDU221, and EDU222. AZ State Law requires any person who participates in a teacher preparation program to obtain an “Identity Verified Print” (IVP) Fingerprint Clearance Card. It can take several weeks to obtain, so begin the process early. IVP cards are valid for six years.
