Office of Field Experience
You will become well acquainted with staff in the Office of Field Experience and Licensure (OFEX). We manage the application and admission process for the Teacher Education Program, work with school divisions to place teacher candidates in schools, and serve as resources when concerns arise in field placements. When you successfully complete your program, we submit your licensure application to the state. Above all, we are problem solvers.
