Graduation and teacher certification for students who have commenced study in Fall 2016 ☆

All TC students in teacher preparation programs who commenced their studies in Fall 2016 are now required to complete several certification-related requirements prior to graduation. These requirements are as follows:

  • General Core in Liberal Arts and Science Requirements (managed by OTE);
  • Content Core Requirements for Art & Technology (managed by Academic Programs);
  • Certification Workshops (DASA, Child Abuse, School Violence Prevention and where applicable, Autism, managed by OTE).

NY state approved programs include the above requirements and TC must now ensure that they are completed prior to graduation. These requirements apply to all students in programs leading to teacher certification, regardless of whether you plan to seek certification in NY state.

You will see these requirements on your Degree Audit.  We encourage you to complete any deficiencies as well as the workshops as soon as possible. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to the Office of Teacher Education at <ote at tc dot edu>.
