Important Information Regarding Teacher Certification in the State of New Jersey

The Department of the Education (DOE) of New Jersey has put new certification requirements into effect as of September 1, 2014. In addition to the required Praxis exam(s) for your subject/grade level, the following requirements are in effect:

  • GPA: The DOE has raised the required GPA to a minimum 3.0 for certification for students graduating after September 1, 2016.

Additional Testing effective September 1, 2015 for students seeking entry to the QUEST and MAT programs.

Pass the new Praxis CORE Battery which consists of three tests in basic skills as follow:

  • Core Academic Skills for Educators: Reading 5712
  • Core Academic Skills for Educators: Writing 5722
  • Core Academic Skills for Educators: Mathematics 5732

Students may be exempted from the CORE Battery by demonstrating an acceptable score on the SAT, ACT or GRE. The state of New Jersey has determined standards based upon the year in which the exam was taken.

Students enrolled in a county college should take the CORE Battery prior to the completion of the associate degree in order to qualify for enrollment in the appropriate teacher certification program.

Policy on Matriculation into QUEST Program

Students in the QUEST program who have earned 60 college credits must be formally matriculated into the QUEST program by passing the appropriate Praxis II examination and have an appropriate GPA. Without a passing score on the Praxis II examination, students will not be allowed to take more than 15 graduate credits in the School of Education. These 15 credits are the graduate courses required to complete the BA/BS degree. No student will be permitted to take additional graduate courses above the 15 credits without passing the appropriate PRAXIS II examination as an undergraduate student.

Start Date: Spring 2013 for incoming Transfers in the Community College Partnership Program.
