The Substitute Teaching Certificate is designed for undergraduates who want to prepare themselves for substitute teaching assignments in PK-12 schools. This certificate does not lead to teacher certification or admission to the College of Community Innovation and Education. The certificate is appropriate for students who are seeking an enhanced understanding of how to be an effective substitute teacher in PK-12 school classrooms or for those who are considering a future career as a fully-certified teacher. This certificate may also strengthen the marketability of students’ major programs. This certificate is available for students in the 2006 catalog year and beyond.
The certificate in Substitute Teaching may be completed fully online, although not all elective options or program prerequisites may be offered online. Newly admitted students choosing to complete this program exclusively via UCF online classes may enroll with a reduction in campus-based fees.
