Students in the teacher education program need to consult with their transfer institution concerning all requirements, including the VCLA & PRAXIS I exams for teacher certification. Students are encouraged to take this exam prior to transfer. Most institutions require a 2.75 GPA for entry into junior level classes. The "VCCS pre Teacher Education" agreements and general transfer information is available on NRCC's website at http://www.nr.edu/transfer.
*Students planning to teach at the secondary level (grades 6 through 12) must major in academic subject they plan to teach (ie. English, Science) and should follow the NRCC transfer degree applicable to that major.
