Transfer Pathways


North Central Texas College strives to provide students the courses of study that match their educational goals. To accomplish this academic pathways are provided to shape a student's educational experience. Pathways do not supplant degree plans nor are they prescriptive, but are more general in nature. Students seeking more detail are encouraged to visit a Counselor or Advisor on their campus for pathways that provide more transfer information. Additionally, Counselors and advisors can provide degree plans more specifically tied to their educational needs.

AAT Pathways 4-8 EC-12 SE

NCTC ASSOCIATE OF ARTS IN TEACHING DEGREE (AAT)
SUGGESTED PATHWAY FOR EDUCATION MAJORS 4-8, EC-12 SPECIAL EDUCATION

The Associate of Arts (AA) in Teaching degree is designed to transfer into a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree at a four-year public university in the state of Texas. The transfer university is the final authority on determining if all the courses within the NCTC Associate of Arts degree are transferrable and applicable for an intended major, so students should consult with an advisor at the university level regarding all coursework to be completed at NCTC. The following is a recommended sequence of courses for students intending on majoring in Teacher Education at a Texas public university. Students placing at college preparatory levels will have additional courses to complete before taking eligible college-level courses in this sequence, and some courses may have pre-requisites-please check the course descriptions in the NCTC catalog. The amount of courses taken each semester can also be adjusted as several core classes are offered during Summer and Mini-mesters-this sequence only takes into account Fall and Spring semesters.
