TCPCG Overview

The Teacher Certification Program for College Graduates is a part of the Neag School of Education. Programs operate out of three regional campuses: Avery Point, Downtown Hartford, and Waterbury.

“TCPCG prepared me to be a teacher by showing me what kind of teacher I am. There’s no cookie cutter mold they’re trying to get out of us. It’s pulling out the best parts of you that make you the greatest teacher.” — Alanna Cooney, ’17 (CLAS), ’18 MA, TCPCG alumna
