New Courses for Teacher Certification
The Education and Learning Trust is pleased to announce that ELT courses have been approved by the State Education Department for specific certification requirements. [Download ELT's certification course list.]
The Education & Learning Trust also offers courses that fulfill requirements for an additional certificate or an extension such as Students with Disabilities [course search] or the 5-6/7-9 extension [course search]
All individuals pursuing their first teaching certificate should complete a registered teacher preparation program at an accredited university or college.
Master's Degree Partnership Programs
The Education & Learning Trust has partnered with Mercy College to provide teachers access to quality graduate programs at reasonable costs. This partnership allows ELT to offer courses that feed into state-approved graduate programs in education and the liberal arts and sciences. Teachers may use these programs to fulfill state requirements for teacher certification.
Official college transcripts are issued by the sponsoring college or university. To request a copy of your transcript, please contact the sponsoring college's registrar's office. Colleges require a written request to release academic transcripts and, except for The College of Saint Rose, require a transcript fee.
Always include contact information on transcript requests in case there is a problem.
