Education: Transfer

Students who plan to become teachers in grades Kindergarten through Twelfth grade (K-12) must have a license to teach in our public schools.  UCC offers several courses that will transfer directly into teacher licensure programs at many universities and colleges. Please see the Education Program coordinator for advising.

There are many different educational programs available to prospective elementary and secondary teachers at Oregon universities and colleges. Some incorporate the teaching degree within a bachelor's degree program , and some within a master's degree program. Each college and university has unique requirements leading to a teaching license, so it is important to work with an advisor early on to ensure you are taking the correct courses. Many programs also require an application for admission with deadlines, references and testing requirements, so planning ahead is essential.

In secondary education , students are advised to decide what subject matter they plan to teach, and to take classes as if that subject were their major. Students should work closely with UCC advisors and representatives of the intended transfer institutions(s) to ensure that coursework taken will apply to the teaching license you are seeking.

Transfer Guide

All prospective teachers are urged to take ED 100, which is a teaching practicum. This will help you verify that teaching is a good career choice for you. It also provides you with documented hours working in schools, a requirement of all teacher education programs for admission.

In addition, you are urged to choose the bachelor's degree school program  early, and then align coursework at UCC to work best with those requirements. Many education courses are offered at UCC that will transfer directly into teacher licensure programs. All education students are urged to work closely with advisors, both at UCC and the "target" school in planning classes at UCC.
