The Teacher Certification Transfer option is for students who want to pursue teaching in public schools, early childhood (PreK–3rd grade), or elementary (1st–8th grade). Students should consult the transfer university’s catalog and work with an academic advisor at TCC to carefully select courses that will meet the baccalaureate and associate degree programs. Students in this program should plan to take the Oklahoma General Education Test (OGET) during the last year at TCC. Upon completion of the four-year curriculum at the university, students will be prepared to apply for an Oklahoma Teacher’s Certificate. A grade of “C” or better is required in the coursework for this curriculum and students must maintain a 2.75 GPA to be admitted to the four-year university.
TCC School of Child Development and Education subscribes to the standards of the National Association for the Education of Young Children Early Childhood Associate degree accreditation.
Note: Tulsa Community College’s Child Development program requires that all child development students enrolling in child development courses obtain a criminal background check at their own expense. Students must fill out and submit a Background Student Information Form along with a Background Check Consent Form to the West Campus Child Development Academic Program office.
