Funding for this project was discontinued August 31, 2011. See http://www.collegeforalltexans.com/apps/financialaid/tofa2.cfm?ID=572. Currently, those students accepted into the THECB Aide Exemption Project prior to August 31, 2011 are eligible for the summer five-week aide project.

According to Texas House Bill 1130 passed in 2001, an educational aide may apply to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) to be a part of its "Educational Aide Exemption Program." Once approved by the THECB, students may receive exemption from enrolling and participating in student teaching; UHCL students would be exempt from Internships I and II. The form, "THECB Educational Aide Exemption Program Internship I and II Waiver," must be completed by any educational aide participating in the program seeking a teaching certificate at UHCL and desiring exemption from Internships I and II.

THECB Requirements of the Students Accepted Into the Aide Exemption Project Prior to August 31, 2011.

Students must have served for at least one year as an educational aide during the five years preceding the start date of the semester they are being exempted from tuition, certain fees and Internships I or II.

Students must have been accepted into the THECB exemption program for at least one semester within the five years prior to the start of the semester in which they would have taken Internship I.

As required by Texas Senate Bill 9, students will be required to submit to a criminal background check conducted by the district upon acceptance into and prior to beginning TCED 4377 (THECB Aide Project). In order for the criminal background check to be conducted, each student must provide all required documentation, including his/her social security number and his/her driver's license number. If a student does not have a driver's license, the state identification number must be provided.

UHCL Requirements to Waive Internships I and II for Students Accepted Into the Aide Exemption Project Prior to August 31, 2011.

    Students must sign the waiver and submit it to B1231 before enrolling in the final year of their degree plan. Students must have a University of Houston-Clear Lake (UHCL) undergraduate degree plan on file, which includes seeking teacher certification. Students must attach a Verification of Experience form verifying at least one year of the education aide experience within the specified time guidelines. Students must also attach a copy of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) letter of acceptance into their aide exemption program. Students must be undergraduates at the time the waiver is signed. Students who already hold a bachelor's degree or higher before signing the waiver are not eligible for this program. All Texas Examinations of Educator Standards (TExES) exams must be passed to be eligible for the THECB Aide Project. Scores must be submitted by April 15. Students must complete an additional 12 semester credit hours of advised UHCL coursework to replace Internships I and II. These grades will be calculated into the pedagogy coursework, which requires a minimum 3.000 grade point average (GPA). These 12 hours will include the following courses:
    • TCED 4377, THECB Aide Project. This three-hour, five-week course includes one week of observations and four weeks of teaching in the area and level of the certificate being pursued. This course is offered only in the first five-week summer session. The UHCL Director of the Center for Professional Development of Teachers (CPDT) will place the students. Students should attend an informational meeting, which is held in early September and February of each year. Dates and times are posted on the bulletin board outside Suite B1231 and on the CPDT website. The applications for TCED 4377 are due March 1 and are available at the informational meeting or by contacting the CPDT. Mailed forms must be postmarked by February 24. No faxes or late applications will be accepted. TCED 4377 requires co-enrollment in (or previous completion of a semester in) TCED 4100, prior to admission to the Teacher Education Program (TEP) and successful completion of MATH 3302 or MATH 3307 if required on the Candidate Plan of Study (CPS). TCED 4377 will replace Internship I and will require a grade of "B-" or better. Students may only have six hours or less of coursework during the long semester following TCED 4377. Academic Advising will conduct an audit to determine students' eligibility for TCED 4377.
    • TCED 4303, Creating Positive Learning Environments in EC-6, or TCED 4304, Creating Positive Learning Environments in 4-8 and 8-12. (Students with TCED 4303 or TCED 4304 already on their plans must substitute a different three-hour course, approved by an academic adviser, as part of this 12-hour package).
    • Six hours of advised coursework.

    Students who are working in local school districts as educational aides and pursuing a B.S. in Interdisciplinary Studies with teacher certification may petition to graduate without Internship I and II in order to enter the Alternative Certification Program (ACP) at the University of Houston-Clear Lake (UHCL). If planning to enter the ACP at UHCL, the following requirements must be met by the appropriate deadlines before approval to graduate without Internship I or Internship II will be granted:

Complete additional advised coursework to replace Internships I and II. The number of semester credit hours of additional coursework required is equivalent to the number of hours associated with Internships I and II (9 or 12). (If TCED 4668 is required, 9 hours of additional coursework must be completed. If TCED 4978 is required, 12 hours of additional coursework must be completed.) The additional courses will be considered Professional Development coursework, and the grades will be included in calculating the Professional Development GPA. A "Course Substitution Form" is required for each course. The form(s) must be submitted prior to graduation. The additional coursework must be selected from the following:
