TTC/TLI Graduate Credit

Graduate credit for many TTC courses is available from either SUNY Buffalo State or The College of New Jersey (new as of 2019). See full details below for SUNY- Buffalo State and watch for further details for The College of New Jersey early in 2019.


The College of New Jersey (TCNJ)

TTC is now partnering with The College of New Jersey (TCNJ) to offer graduate credit for summer institute courses. TTC participants have the ability to earn up to 12 graduate credits as non-matriculated students which can be applied toward a Master of Education degree should the participant choose to enroll in a TCNJ graduate program.

Participants who are new to TCNJ will sign up for graduate credit at the TTC institute and will be “quick admitted” as visiting students then provided with an ID number and access to TCNJ systems. The fee to bank courses for graduate credit is $450 per class, payable at TTC. Students who elect to bank coursework are required to submit an additional assignment to their TTC facilitator. Participants will be able to order official transcripts as soon as they receive confirmation of their earned credit from TCNJ. Participants who subsequently decide to enroll in the full master’s program will do so directly with TCNJ.

TCNJ’s Off-Site Graduate Programs have been serving international educators since 1981 with summer programs in Mallorca, Spain and Bangkok, Thailand and academic year programs in Hsinchu, Taiwan, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and Cairo, Egypt. TCNJ offers Master of Education programs in Elementary, Secondary, and English as a Second Language teaching. Each of these programs requires 30 credits of study through a mix of on-line and on-site study. TTC participants may apply 12 credits of coursework toward one of these programs provided that they satisfy program requirements which can be determined in consultation with a TCNJ advisor.

It is also possible for a participant to be admitted to a TCNJ master’s program prior to completing coursework at the TTC. For more information on this option, please contact Dr. Stuart Carroll at szcarrol@tcnj.edu.
