Alternate Route to Certification Programs

These programs provide a way to get certified without obtaining a traditional bachelor degree in education. Generally, programs are run through states' boards of education. You are placed (with provisional certification) in school districts with teacher shortages and begin teaching a regular course load immediately, often at regular salary. Your teaching counts towards the state's requirements for student teaching hours. You complete the coursework or special seminars required by the state for certification at night or during the summer (this differs from state to state). Be sure to find out if the certification you will receive is permanent, and if it can be transferred to other states.

The Alternate Route to Teacher Certification (ARC (CT))  
Admission to ARC is competitive and requires a minimum of a bachelor's degree and an academic major in the subject you wish to teach, along with other application criteria.

ARC I is a nine-week, full-time summer session which runs from June into August. ARC II is a weekend session (Friday evenings and all day Saturdays) on three out of four weekends each month from late October into mid-May. Both sessions require a student teaching experience as well.
