Frequently Asked Questions about the GTC Program

What are the costs for the 2020 GTC tracks?

There are no costs for any of the 2020 Graduation to Certification tracks.

If you are selected to be part of the GTC Assessment or Academic track, the only potential cost would be if you are not a member of RID, the CATIE Center will only pay the member rate for the NIC test.  You do need to have passed the NIC Knowledge exam prior to entering the program.

I will not have taken the written test by January 15, 2019.  Can I request an extension?

The completed application form deadline has been extended to January 15, 2019. At this time, you need to have passed the written test so that we know you will be eligible for the CASLI performance exam. We are not able to provide any extensions at this point.

If you have not taken the written test, we encourage you to register for the GTC Journey track.

Can I get an extension for your reference?

The deadline for references is December 20, 2019.  You still need to complete the initial application and sample interpretations by December 15, 2019 at 11:59 PM PST.  Your references will be able to complete their form by December 20 and your application will still be considered on time.

(We changed the requirement from 2 references to just one to hopefully make it more manageable.)

When will I know if I am accepted or not for the GTC Assessment track?

The CATIE Center’s goal is to make decisions and inform applicants by January 10, 2019.
