NY State Certification

The certification process is not automatic; the Department will need to recommend you for the programs for which you qualify, and then you will need to apply to the State to request those certificates be issued.  An overview of the process is here.
Recommendation Process: At the end of each semester, the Education Department recommends all graduates who have met requirements for certification.  You will be recommended for the certifications for which you qualify (see Wagner Program Codes) if you meet the following requirements:
  • Completion of all program requirements
  • Documented completion of all State required workshops
  • A minimum 3.0 overall GPA and a 3.0 GPA in student teaching
  • Registration in the New York State TEACH system (see sample TEACH Application Form)
After the program recommends you for certification, you may apply for your certificates whenever you would like.  The State system automatically checks these additional requirements when you apply for your certificate:
  • Passing scores on all required tests for the desired certificate
  • Fingerprint registration to transfer prints from your NYC student teaching to the State
  • Successful completion of new Teacher Performance Assessment requirements for graduates beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year.  Submission deadlines for edTPA can be found here.
The State of New York maintains a comprehensive web-based information system about all certification issues and offers a help line for technical issues: 518-486-6041.  For other questions about certification, call 518.474.3901

Out-of-State Certification

The certification and reciprocity process from New York to other states is not automatic.  Go directly to the state website in which you are applying for a detailed summary of their teacher certification processes.  Please see the following links to the tri-state area Department of Education websites:
New Jersey
Pennsylvania
Connecticut
Regulations vary from state to state.
