    New Pathways to Teaching in New Jersey (NPTNJ)

    Hudson County Community College is pleased to offer New Pathways to Teaching in NJ (NPTNJ), an Alternate Route to Teaching program approved by the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE). This unique collaboration involves a partnership between NJ community colleges and New Jersey City University. Students enrolled in the program prepare to become Provisional Teachers. As Alternate Route teachers, they establish themselves as viable candidates for employment at school districts across the state. The program is divided into four instructional semesters plus one introduction course. Sections are between seven (7) and ten (15) weeks. Students can choose to register for the NPTNJ program for credit, having the option to obtain their permanent teaching certification and transfer up to fifteen (15) credits towards a graduate program at NJCU, or for non-credit to only obtain the permanent certificate. As part of our special partnership, NJCU will honor fifteen (15) credits towards a graduate degree for students that complete NPTNJ.

    For additional information on the NPTNJ Program, Contact: ce@hccc.edu or call 201-360-4244.
