New Pathways to Teaching in New Jersey

The Center for Continuing Studies at Mercer County Community College is one of many community colleges offering the alternate route to teaching preparation program in partnership with New Jersey City University. Candidates who hold a bachelor's degree or higher and want to become licensed teachers without going through a traditional education program can do so through the Alternate Route Program. Coursework can be completed on campus or as a hybrid program with some in class sessions and some online. The NPTNJ program is approved and regulated by the New Jersey Department of Education. The Center for Continuing Studies at Mercer County Community College is a registered provider (provider # 4285) with the New Jersey Department of Education.
