Applicants to the Teaching Education Program will be invited to attend an on-campus group-screening interview to be considered for admission. The interview will provide a chance for applicants to demonstrate their writing and communication skills in an individual and group setting.
Once your complete online E-App has been received by the Teacher Education Program, you will be contacted by the TEP office via the email listed on your E-App to attend one of our interview dates.
If you do not hear from the TEP office via email within one week of submitting your complete E-App, please contact the office at 805-893-2084 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The 2014-2015 application cycle screening interview dates and times are:
DATE TIME LOCATION Wednesday January 15, 2014 4:00-7:00 PM UCSB - Education Building, Room TBA Saturday February 22, 2014 9:00 AM-12:00 PM UCSB - Education Building, Room TBA Saturday March 1, 2014 9:00 AM-12:00 PM UCSB- Education Building, Room TBA
January interview date: if there is a significant amount of early completed applications, TEP will host a screening interview in January and applicants will be invited via email to attend this interview date for an early February admission consideration. We reserve the right to cancel the January interview date if we have an insufficient number of early completed applications. Applicants affected by a cancellation of the January interview date would be rescheduled for an interview in February or March.
Alternative Screening Interview: The on-campus interview is the preferred and recommended process. However, applicants who live outside the Santa Barbara County region and need to travel a distance may request an alternative interview that includes a videotape of a teaching lesson and a virtual interview. Request an alternative interview only as a final option if it is not at all possible to come to UCSB. After submitting a completed E-App, contact the TEP Office at (805) 893-2084 to request an alternative screening interview.
If an applicant that has paid & submitted their E-App does not attend an interview date or does not request an alternative screening interview, the application will be considered and marked incomplete.
