Certification Overview

Provisional Status


All incoming instructors begin in provisional status. Provisional status becomes full status once an instructor has gone through a cycle of engagement and review that includes:

  • attending the orientation for new instructors,
  • submitting a complete file of course materials,
  • attending at least one ECE conference,
  • having a site visit, and
  • engaging with the Faculty Coordinator in a review process.

This process should be completed in the first or second year. See Infographic.

Maintaining Certification


To maintain certification, an instructor must

  • submit up-to-date course materialsĀ in a timely fashion via the Course Materials Upload form, and
  • attend at least one UConn ECE English Conference every two years.
