Collin College provides general academic courses and electives for students who plan to transfer to a college or university. Because of the various transfer requirements at colleges and universities, and to ensure enrollment in appropriate courses, students should verify course transferability and degree applicability with a Collin College academic advisor and/or the college or university that they plan to attend.

To earn an associate degree, complete the 42 credit hour General Education Core, and 18 credit hours of general studies electives and the Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree requirements.

Check with your transfer institution before registering for general studies electives to make sure your courses will be degree applicable to your bachelor’s degree at the transfer institution.

Take the first steps toward becoming a teacher with an Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) degree from Collin College.

Collin College offers degree plans with three different specializations: early childhood through Grade 6, middle grades (grades 4-8) and secondary (grades 6-12, 7-12 or 8-12, depending on teaching content area). Specializations will prepare students for transfer to a baccalaureate program that leads to initial Texas teacher certification.

Students seeking all-level certifications (early childhood through Grade 12) like special education, theater, and art, can transfer EDUC 1301  and EDUC 2301  to baccalaureate institutions. Students should check with transfer advisors for other course requirements.

Students who complete the AAT will also complete 32 observation hours in a public school classroom.

Some TECA courses may be transferable in addition to the AAT. Students should contact their intended teacher education program for detailed information prior to registering. Contact names and phone numbers are available from a Collin College academic advisor or go to http://www.collin.edu/transferu/index.html.

EDUC 1301  and EDUC 2301  are offered in eight-week, sixteen-week, and weekend express formats. Courses are offered face-to-face and online. EDUC 1301  is a pre-requisite for EDUC 2301 .

See Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT)  and the workforce Child Development (AAS)  program.
