The purpose of this course is to help candidates seeking to upgrade from a 24-Hour Certificate to a 50-hour certificate. This course is conducted as a laboratory course under the supervision of the CE-provider program. Candidates must deliver a planned lesson using required template; submit a lesson reflection form provided by our program; and complete an interactive field experience log. Requests for certificate upgrades are reviewed on an ongoing-basis, and candidates may enroll at anytime.
If you earned your certificate through with Rutgers Alternate Route, there is no fee for the upgrade. However, candidates with certificates from other regional training centers must pay a $25 upgrade fee which defrays the cost of reviewing submissions and issuing the enhanced certificate of completion.
NOTE: As of July 1, 2017, the New Jersey Department of Education requires a minimum 3.0 GPA for Certificate of Eligibility (CE) applicants. Candidates who do not meet the 3.0 minimum GPA should not enroll in this course, as they will be ineligible for a CE. However, if you currently hold a CE and need this course as part of your 50-Hour Pre-professional requirement, you may enroll as the 3.0 minimum GPA does NOT apply to you. ]
