North Country Teacher Certification Program (NCTCP)
A Partnership among Plymouth State University and White Mountains Community College
The goal of the NCTCP is to provide bachelor’s degrees with teacher certification in elementary education for North Country students. The program launched as a 2+2 cohort model in the fall of 2005. Since then, it has been revamped as a three-year bachelor’s degree program. Students enroll at WMCC to complete their associate degree in Teacher Education along with a certificate in Special Education; a total of 78 credits. They then transfer to PSU (but complete all courses at WMCC) to complete the additional 42 credits required for their bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education.
