Students can earn the Certified Teaching Assistant (CTA) credential upon completion of the certificate of proficiency and make a passing score on the ETS ParaPro assessment.

The Associate of Science in Education degree is designed for students who plan to transfer to a four-year institution to complete a Kindergarten through Sixth grade or a Middle-Level Education degree. This plan is not a guarantee the student will be admitted into a teacher education program at a four-year institution.

In addition to Associate of Science in Education completion, student must meet minimum requirements of transfer institution’s College of Education to be admitted with junior status.

Students should see their Academic Advisor for the specific plan of study based on the Memorandum of Understanding with the four-year institution to which you will be transferring.
