Special Approvals must be completed for all TEP Core courses, methods courses, and student teaching courses. Once completed, signed, and submitted, Special Approvals are processed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays each week. If your Special Approval is approved, you will be sent an email from TEP to your UIS email account letting you know you may register. If you do not register for the course by 8 AM Central Time on the following Monday, your Special Approval will be cancelled, and your seat in the course will be withdrawn. In order to receive another Special Approval, you must complete the Special Approval process again.
