The Lone Star College-Kingwood Teacher Certification Program (TCP) invites you to attend an information session on Monday, Feb. 11, in CLA 114 from 5 - 7 p.m. and take your first step towards becoming a teacher in Texas.
Recent statistics provided by the State Board of Educator Certification (SBEC) show that Lone Star College-Kingwood's TCP is one of the largest programs of its kind in Texas. The program continues to focus on excellent customer service and high quality outcomes. Their tuition remains the least expensive of all alternative certification programs in our geographic region.
Students without a bachelor's degree can work towards an Associate's of Arts in Teaching and through an articulation agreement with the University of Houston can go on to complete a bachelor's degree. Those who have already earned a bachelor's degree can obtain alternate certification through Lone Star College-Kingwood's Continuing Education TCP Program. CE-TCP students must take Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities and participate in 20 hours of observation.
