In addition to being admitted to The College and the major, students must formally be accepted into a teacher-education program at the end of their sophomore year. As a result of New Jersey State Department of Education code revisions (section 6.11-5.1), a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.75 is required for students to successfully complete their teacher-education program and be recommended for certification and licensure. To help assure that students at The College of New Jersey meet their requirement by graduation: 1) admission to candidacy in all teacher-education programs, following completion of 60 credits, will require a 2.5 minimum GPA and 2) admission to student teaching in all teacher-education programs will require a 2.75 minimum GPA. Exceptions involving admission will be considered on an individual basis and granted upon approval of the chair of the department offering the program and the dean of education.
Students in the Schools of Art, Media, and Music; Culture and Society; and Science who are preparing to teach must take an approved academic major as well as the required sequence of teacher preparation courses.
Students majoring in early childhood education, elementary education, and education of the deaf and hard of hearing/elementary education (dual certification program) must complete an approved academic major. To avoid extending their program, they should declare that major early in their freshman year.

Quality of Teacher Preparation (Title II, Higher Education Act annual report): The pass rate for teacher-education students graduating from TCNJ in 2000–2001 on the Praxis II examination required for initial licensure in New Jersey was 99 percent.
