The Special Education Transition Certificate will provide the knowledge, skills, and competencies required of secondary special educators and guidance counselors to assist youth and young adults as they transition to postsecondary opportunities. The certificate is aligned with the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC) standards related to transition. A Seton Hall University graduate Special Education Transition Certificate will be awarded to students who successfully complete the four-course, 12-credit program. Students also may apply the 12 credits toward an M.A. in Special Education. *Individual courses within the transition sequence may be taken, but the certificate is only available to those completing the four course sequence.
