CTC wants all teacher candidates to have knowledge of the U.S. Constitution. Teacher candidates are required to participate in coursework or an examination that covers the provisions and principles of the U.S. Constitution before they can be recommended for a preliminary or intern teaching credential.
Meet Requirement Through Coursework
Candidates can meet the U.S. Constitution requirement through coursework completed at a regionally-accredited community college, four-year college, or university. CTC has deemed that coursework for this requirement must be met by the grade of “C” or better or a pass, credit, or satisfactory grade. CTC will not accept AP scores to meet this requirement.
It is the student's responsibility to provide proof of meeting the U.S. Constitution Requirement through coursework. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org stating the course taken, the institution it was taken at, and a copy of transcripts from the institution.
Meet Requirement Through Examination
Candidates can also meet the U.S. Constitution requirement by successfully completing the online U.S. Constitution Exam.
Once the exam is passed, please email your certificate of completion to email@example.com.
Teaching Interns or Preliminary Credential Applicants
- If applying for a Teaching Internship, applicants must submit proof of meeting the U.S. Constitution as part of their application. This proof and all other application materials must be submitted before the designated deadline.
