All UCTC candidates apply to the Lynch School of Education and Human Development’s master of education program in Curriculum & Instruction and indicate on the application that they are applying to the Urban Catholic Teacher Corps. The graduate application fee is waived for UCTC applicants. Once offered admission in the master's program, candidates will interview to then be accepted into UCTC.
UCTC is a member of the University Consortium for Catholic Education (UCCE). This consortium seeks to establish and support a growing cadre of colleges and universities as they design and implement graduate teaching service programs. If UCTC does not meet one’s specific needs or interests, potential applicants may wish to consider applying for one of the other UCCE member programs.
UCTC deadline: January 6.
You will need recommendations from two individuals who can speak to your academic qualifications, a roommate/housemate, a student teaching supervisor, and a spiritual advisor.
Every UCTC candidate who completes an application will be offered an interview, which will be scheduled after you have successfully applied to and have been accepted by the Lynch School of Education and Human Development.
Candidates of UCTC will be notified of their application status on approximately March 17.
*Note: If you do not begin your full-practicum student teaching until the Spring semester, you may send your Supervising Teacher Recommendation Letter no later than February 15. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on sending in your Supervising Teacher Recommendation by the February deadline.
