Teacher Pathway Program

Welcome to the Teacher Pathway Program (TPP) at Fullerton College. Our Pathway Program is a cohort-based learning community, which serves incoming first-year students who are interested in pursuing a career in education. TPP aims to assist students with educational plans by providing a wide range of academic support services to ensure successful completion of a degree and/or transfer. We provide tools, resources, and opportunities to enhance the student experience at Fullerton College.

Students in the program receive:

  • Locked-in spots to our saved seats in first-year cohort classes
  • No Out-of-Pocket costs for an entire year since cover all cohort textbooks
  • Exclusive social events, guest speakers and field trips– all related to the education system


Some examples of career concentrations within the education system include:

  • Teaching
  • Education Administration
  • School Counseling
  • Program Director/Coordinator
  • Speech-Language Pathologist
  • Social Service Specialist
  • Support Personnel
  • Site Supervisor
