Teacher Education/ Transfer Program

Teacher Education - Transfer Program

Associate of Arts in Teacher Education - Curriculum Code 5261

The Associate of Arts in Teacher Education will be awarded to a student who successfully completes one of the following three programs: Early Childhood Education Licensure, Paraprofessional Licensure, or transfer for K-12 Licensure. Conferral of the Associate of Arts Degree in Teacher Education in the transfer area of concentration with a 2.5 minimum grade point average in all education cluster courses (ECED, EDCT, and PSYH) will permit transfer with junior year standing to a four-year college or university with an approved program in teacher education. Subsequent satisfactory completion of the transfer school requirements will lead to a bachelor's degree and to contingent recommendation from that school for one of the State of Ohio Department of Education provisional licenses to teach in the K-12 system. Since all transfer schools have different approaches/requirements to licensure, the student should consult carefully with the college counseling department about selecting appropriate course selections for varying licensure concentrations to assure maximum transferability. Lorain County Community College has articulation agreements with colleges and universities including programs offered by Lorain County Community College's University Partnership.
