Credit Registry For Teachers
Charter Oak State College in cooperation with the Connecticut State Department of Education, has established a Credit Registry program. This program is designed to assist individuals who wish to use standardized exams in meeting certification requirements for cross endorsement, for individuals who have worked in approved private schools for a minimum of two years in an appropriate teaching assignment or for individuals who are enrolled in and advised through the Alternate Route to Teacher Certification program with the State of Connecticut.
