Cloud County Community College offers an Associate of Science degree in Elementary Education. This degree prepares students to transfer on to a 4-year university to complete the next degree.
With Elementary Education, there are additional transfer requirements that students must consider.
Most transfer institutions require education majors to pass (30th percentile or higher) the Pre-Professional Skills Test (PPST) BEFORE acceptance into teacher education. The PPST is a test of general knowledge in the areas of reading, mathematics and writing. Cloud County administers the PPST each fall. For more
information, contact the Advisement Center.
Students must maintain at least a 2.75 GPA for acceptance into teacher education.
* Each transfer university accepts different courses to fulfill requirements. Students should check with the Advisement Center before enrolling in courses.
Students interested in teaching in a particular content area at the secondary level can also earn either an Associate of Science or Associate of Arts degree at Cloud, depending on the area of concentration.
Most transfer institutions require successful completion of the PPST test for admission to junior level education courses.
