Updated Policies for Urban Education

​If you have completed the program and were prepared for a Generalist test then you would need to perform remediation before you can gain approval for taking a Core Subjects test.

If you have been testing and currently enrolled in the program and you have gotten to your third attempt without successfully passing any of your certification test you will need remediation. 

If you have graduated and haven't received your certification (before 2015) you have three options

  • Option 1 - perform online remediation through Certify Teacher (No financial aid available)
  • Option 2 - Apply to the ACP program and take the necessary classes that will prepare you for the newer, more rigorous test (financial aid is usually not available) 
  • Option 3 - Apply for the MAT with Certificaiton program (obtain a Master's degree and Certification) (finanancial aid is offered)

Please note that a new policy was put in place to register for tests. All test registration must be submitted through the Registration Form

Also, as of August 22, 2016, you will no longer be allowed to register for more than 2 tests at a time. You must plan accordingly and only register for tests that you plan on taking within the next 2-3 weeks. 

If you have any questions about your options do not hesitate to contact Dr. Teryana Lamb, Coordinator of Education Compliance and Certification, at​ or (713)221-2722.
