Note to teacher education alumni

Note to teacher education alumni,

In the past, the Smith Career Center provided Credential Files services for teacher education alumni. The Credential Files typically included: signed release form, resume, three to five letters of recommendation, student teaching evaluation, and copy of teaching certificate. Currently, schools districts accept self-credentialing during the application process, and the need for the Credential Files has become outdated.

The Smith Career Center will no longer provide Credential Files service. If you have an active Credential file with the Smith Career Center and would like a copy of the file, please contact us at 309-677-2510 or

Please be aware that all files will be eliminated by July 29, 2011.

If you are currently seeking employment, the resources of the Smith Career Center remain available to you at no cost. We can discuss your individual job search needs and will direct you to appropriate resources. To request an office or phone appointment, contact us at 309-677-2510,, or in person in 104 Burgess Hall.
