Take Discounted Special Education Courses at RVCC this Summer  

Student TeachingThe College of Education and Human Services is offering four classes* that can be applied toward certification in special education through the University Center at Raritan Valley Community College at a 25% discount from the traditional Seton Hall per graduate credit tuition

The courses would fulfill more than half of the seven-course sequence needed for New Jersey special education certification. Licensed elementary or secondary education teachers may complete the sequence to earn the additional certificate.

Courses will be offered on weekends: two weekends and online communication in between equals one course. Students may enroll in one to all four of the summer courses. The remaining courses required to apply for certification in special education will be offered in fall and spring of 2014-2015.
