Teacher Education - Transfer Program, Associate of Arts in Teacher Education

Curriculum Code #5261

Effective May 2017

Division Social Sciences and Human Services

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 GPA 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.
