School of Education—Certification Grants

This campaign ended on November 03, 2017, but you can still make a gift to The College of New Jersey by clicking here!

Prior to graduation, our seniors are required to pass several standardized tests to earn their teacher certifications. The cost for these tests exceed $700, and often, students’ assets are already severely depleted with student teaching and other costs.

As of this year, New Jersey teacher candidates are required to complete the edTPA, an assessment developed by S.C.A.L.E. and administered by Pearson, which involves the creation of an instructional unit (3–5 lessons), administering instruction, and analyzing assessment. edTPA is an additional requirement along the pathway to certification, presenting an additional cost to students of $300 to have their portfolio reviewed.

Your support will permit us to help students afford these tests and assessments. Combined with the support of others, your gift will augment the excellence of our college’s rich teacher preparation by enabling students to complete requirements and obtain certification.
