Interested in becoming an educator?

Start your journey at ECTC with affordable tuition, top-notch programs, and individual attention.

The Education program at ECTC is designed to fold into an Associate in Arts or Associate in Science degree so that students complete their general education requirements and then transfer to a four-year college or university for a bachelor’s degree with pre-mapped pathways!

Getting Started

What are my degree, diploma, and certificate options?

ECTC has numerous partnerships with 4-year universities.  If you are interested in a transfer pathway in this field, check out our partnering university pathways.  Find more information on transferring from ECTC.

How Do I Pay For This?

Worry no more. With the lowest tuition in Kentucky, financial aid options, and a helping hand to guide you through the application process, ECTC has you covered. ECTC will help you reach your goals at a price that won't break the bank.

Where do I start?

Apply for admission to ECTC to receive information from the Admissions Office about submitting your placement test scores (ACT or other exams) and to schedule a meeting with an advisor to register for your classes.

What Else Do I Need to Know?

Field Licensure Requirements

Students will need to transfer to a four-year school where they can obtain their certification as a teacher.  This will ultimately require testing based upon the requirements of the Education Professional Standards Board of Kentucky.

Length of Program

You can earn an associate in applied science degree in two years if you maintain full-time status.

This information should not be considered a substitute for the KCTCS Catalog. You should always choose classes in collaboration with your faculty advisor to ensure that you meet all degree requirements.
