Estimated Program Costs Required Classes Entrance Requirements

The Early Childhood Teacher Licensure Transfer major is for those of you who plan to become teachers of children from birth to third grade. This program provides a broad base of general education knowledge while also laying the foundation for a successful experience in the early childhood education field. The Early Childhood Education Teacher Licensure Transfer Major was designed in conjunction with the Iowa Regents Universities to assist you in transferring into early childhood teacher licensure programs.

This program of study may also be followed if you wish to transfer to another college or university, but it is critical that you confer with your intended transfer institution early in your academic career. Completing this AA program does not make you eligible for Iowa teacher licensure. You must transfer in order to complete a Bachelor's degree and a state-approved teacher preparation program.
