If a recommendation has been entered, you will be able to view it in your TEACH account (Account Information page, College Recommendations tab). If you don’t see a recommendation, or you don’t know the program code for your application, contact the Certification Officer at your college.

Pathway: NYS Professional License Certificate Progression (Speech and Language Disabilities applicants only)

If you obtained your Speech and Language Disabilities – Initial Certificate through the NYS Professional Licensure pathway, then you are required to use this pathway for your Professional Certificate.

Pathway: Certificate Progression

If neither pathway above describes you, then this pathway is the correct one.

Certification or Verification of New York State Licensure


A license indicates that an individual has met the minimum requirements of the Education Law to enter practice or use a professional title within New York State (NYS). A license is valid for the life of the holder unless revoked, annulled, or suspended by the Board of Regents. The Education Law requires that individual licensees periodically register with the Department and pay a fee in order to actively practice or use a professional title within NYS.

The Department issues certification of licensure to provide a licensee’s official information on the basis of licensure for a variety of purposes. The Department also issues written verification of licensure confirming an individual is licensed in NYS and their registration status. To determine which request you need to make for your specific purposes please complete and submit the Online License Certification and Verification Form* and fee. Payment can only be made by credit card (MasterCard, Visa, or American Express).

You can view an official online verification of any New York State professional license at no cost by using our Online Verification Service. You can also search our Enforcement Actions for any disciplinary information on licensees. 

Contact us if you have any questions.

*Note:

  • Engineering, Land Surveying and Geology - For information on requesting Certification of Successful Completion of Licensure Examination or Intern Certificates see the Engineering & Land Surveying or the Geology webpage.
  • Pharmacy Interns - Please do not fill out this request form. The Department does NOT provide written certification or verification of internship hours or clinical experiences. Contact the state board where you are seeking licensure to inquire whether they will accept an affidavit, from your pharmacy school or the preceptor who supervised your internship, attesting to your completed internship dates/hours. An online verification of an intern permit can be performed using our Online Verification Service (under the pharmacist profession).

FAQ

NYSED Certification Guidance for NYS Registered Educator Preparation Programs Impacted by COVID-19

1. What is the difference between the New York State Education Department (NYSED) and the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE)?

The NYSED in Albany, NY is the state agency that issues your NYS Certificate which is required to work in public schools across NY State. The NYCDOE (formerly the NYC Board of Education) is your employer if you work for NYC Public Schools.

2. I am completing a Steinhardt certification program, must I apply for NYS certification or does it issue automatically?

You must apply for NYS Certification, please see application instructions.

3. Must I also apply to the NYCDOE if I wish to work for NYC Public Schools? How can I show proof that I am enrolled in a teacher certification program? 

Yes, please visit TEACH NYC.

Speech and Language Disabilities and School Counseling students please visit this TEACH NYC site

Please note if you have already registered as a student teacher you will need to re-register, create a new username and password and submit a new application when seeking employment within NYC public schools.

The NYCDOE application process will require a letter of expected completion. Please use this Letter of Expected Completion. Please complete your information and upload to your NYCDOE application. If you are unable to upload, you may fax the letter to the NYCDOE at 718-935-3532, Attention: Pending Documents

You may use this letter for any prospective employer.

Please also review the NYCDOE Application Process FAQ.

4. A NYC public school interested in hiring me is asking for my file number. What is a NYCDOE file number?

In the past, NYCDOE file numbers were issued when a NYS certified teacher applied for a NYC teaching license whether or not there was an offer of a teaching position. The NYCDOE no longer issues licenses.

The NYCDOE file number is a unique identifier issued to educators in the NYCDOE for payroll purposes. You are not issued a file number until after you have been hired and it will be issued after your first paycheck. If you were previously issued a file number as a substitute teacher or employee, you will keep that file number.

You do not need a file number to be hired (payrolled), it is processed through your social security number.

5. I also wish to work for NYS public schools outside of NYC. Where can I apply and view job listings?

Please visit OLAS JOBS.

6. I'm an International Student without a social security number. Can I get fingerprinted for student teaching? Can I register for the NYS certification exams? Can I work for NYC public schools upon graduation?

Please visit International Student Information.

7.a. How can I tell if my fingerprint clearance appears in my NYSED TEACH account?
I was fingerprinted by the NYCDOE for student teaching and my fingerprint clearance does not appear in my NYSED TEACH account, what should I do?

Log in to your NYSED TEACH account (if you haven't yet created an account Self-Register to do so), once logged in, click on TEACH Home, click on the Account Information link , highlight Fingerprinting, click GO. You should see the statement "Your DCJS and FBI results have been received" if you were fingerprinted using the NYSED IdentoGO process.  If you were fingerprinted by the NYCDOE for student teaching at 65 Court Street in Brooklyn, you should see the statement "We have received your fingerprint information from NYC"  Either statement indicates that the NYSED has your fingerprint clearance.  Ignore No Data Found underneath in either case.

If you were fingerprinted by the NYCDOE for student teaching at 65 Court Street in Brooklyn and your fingerprint information does not appear in your NYSED TEACH account, complete the OSPRA 104 Form, do not check a box in Section 2 if none apply, and email the form to [email protected]

The NYCDOE will transfer your fingerprint clearance to the NYSED.

8. I completed my certification program at Steinhardt and have not been recommended for certification to the NYSED, why not?

Program completers are not recommended automatically, you must request that Steinhardt recommend you after you've applied online, see question 2 above. The Request for Recommendation Form can be found in the application instructions.

9.a. I submitted my Request for Recommendation Form, why haven't I been recommended yet?

Steinhardt will recommend May and January completers only after all grades have been posted on your NYU record and your degree has been awarded. We recommend Summer completers once your summer grade(s) have all posted on your NYU record.

9.b. I need to complete a liberal arts deficiency before my advisor will sign my Request for Recommendation Form. What kinds of courses are considered acceptable? 

Please see NYSED Policy Statement on Liberal Arts and Sciences or pdf version.

10. How will I know if my NYS Certificate has issued? How can I check the status of my certificate?

Unfortunately the NYSED does not send notification of certificate issuance. Log in to your NYSED TEACH account, click on TEACH Home, click on the Account Information link, highlight Certificates, click GO. For more details, please visit NYSED.

If you've applied for NYS certification, have passed all of your required NYS exams, your fingerprint clearance appears in your NYSED TEACH account and you have been recommended by NYU Steinhardt AND one or more of your certificates have not issued on the NYSED TEACH system, please contact the NYSED to request that your certificate(s) be issued. Oftentimes certain actions require the intervention of NYSED personnel, please see their contact information below:

NYSED Office of Teaching Initiatives
phone: 518-474-3901, email: [email protected]
Staff are available: 9:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. EST Monday through Friday.

11. How can I show proof that I am certified? Will I receive my NYS Initial or Provisional (School Counseling only) Certificate in the mail?

The NYSED no longer issues paper Initial or Provisional Certificates, please see NYSED. You will not receive your certificate(s) in the mail (unless you request them for an additional fee, see below) nor will you receive an email indicating that they have issued in TEACH. Initial or Provisional Certificates will only issue in your TEACH account. The screen in your account indicating your issued status does not look like a certificate nor is it in pdf format. You could print this page or take a screenshot to email to prospective employers. The NYCDOE and other NYS school districts have access to TEACH and may view your certification status. However, if you need or wish to have a paper copy, you may request one for an additional fee. Once your certificate has issued in TEACH, log in to your account, click on TEACH Home on the top menu and then click on "I would like a printed certificate" under Online Application heading. Please also see NYSED for additional information.

12. How can I apply for additional areas of certification (or extensions) on my own now that I'm certified without having to complete another certification program?

The NYSED allows already certified individuals to apply for most additional areas of certification (or extensions) on their own, not through Steinhardt or with a Steinhardt recommendation, but rather through the Individual Evaluation for an Additional Classroom Teaching Certificate (Must hold a valid certificate) Pathway or another Individual Evaluation Pathway. You may view the requirements on the NYSED Search Certification Requirements site.

If you were certified prior to the NYSED's new DASA workshop requirement, you will need to complete the DASA workshop prior to the issuance of any additional or new certificates, please see details

As a matter of policy, NYU Steinhardt does not evaluate transcripts for individuals applying through the Individual Evaluation Pathway for an Additional Classroom Teaching Certificate (Must hold a valid certificate) Pathway or any another Individual Evaluation Pathway. Any evaluation completed other than by the NYSED would be unofficial and possibly inaccurate.

To apply for additional areas go back to the TEACH Online system, apply for the additional Initial Certificate(s) (or Professional only if you already hold Professional in another area) or extension(s) online following the instructions on the website.

When prompted for a program code, you DO NOT enter a program code, instead select:

  1. No, I have not completed, nor am I enrolled in, an Approved Teacher Preparation Program at a New York State College or University for this certificate and this type. 

On the Interstate Reciprocity screen, select No, I am not eligible to apply through the Interstate Reciprocity Pathway. Then select the Individual Evaluation for an Additional Classroom Teaching Certificate Pathway or Individual Evaluation Pathway.

You will then have to mail your transcripts (and/or other documentation) and wait for them to review. You can request an NYU transcript. If your or an employing school wants to expedite the process once the NYSED has received your transcripts, please see steps.

You may wish to include course descriptions in your correspondence with the NYSED.

Steinhardt course descriptions may be found online or in current or past bulletins.

Include cover letter with name, the last four digits of your social security number and your date of birth and mail with transcript(s) and course description(s) to:

Office of Teaching Initiatives
New York State Education Department
89 Washington Ave, 5N EB
Albany, New York 12234

*When your transcript(s) are first received, your application status will be Ready for Review. Ready for Review means just that - your application is in the queue to be reviewed and hasn't been reviewed by an evaluator at the NYSED yet. The system defaults to "deficient" or "unmet" for some requirements until the application is evaluated, it more accurately should state "not yet reviewed" next the those requirements. The evaluation will change once your application is reviewed.

As you would be applying directly to the NYSED, please contact them with any questions you may have.

13. I hold Childhood Ed 1-6 Initial Certification, how can I add Early Childhood Ed Birth-2nd Grade (which includes Kindergarten) Certification?

As answered in question 12 above, the NYSED allows already certified teachers to apply for additional certificates on their own, not through Steinhardt, you may view the requirements on the NYSED Search Certification Requirements site. To add Early Childhood B-2 (once you hold Childhood Ed 1-6) and/or Students with Disabilities (SWD) B-2 (if you also hold SWD 1-6) you will need to re-apply to the NYSED online and mail them your transcript(s). You are not applying for extensions, but rather stand alone certificates in Early Childhood B-2 and/or SWD B-2.

The NYSED requires at least 6 credits that must address the Early Childhood developmental level, which you may have already completed as part of your program. If you have, go back to the TEACH Online system, apply for the additional Initial Certificate(s) (or Professional only if you already hold Professional in another area) online following the instructions on the website.

If you were certified prior to the NYSED's new DASA workshop requirement, you will need to complete the DASA workshop prior to the issuance of any additional or new certificates, please see details.

According to the NYSED, if you've taken the old non-grade range specific Multi-Subject CST, you will not need the to take and pass the new Multi-Subject B-2 CST. If you've taken and passed the new Multi-Subject 1-6 CST, the NYSED will require that you complete Parts 1 and 2 of the new Multi-Subject B-2 CST.

When prompted for a program code, you DO NOT enter a program code, instead select:

  1. No, I have not completed, nor am I enrolled in, an Approved Teacher Preparation Program at a New York State College or University for this certificate and this type.

The evaluation will change once your application is reviewed.

15. Am I eligible to apply for certification in other states? Which states have reciprocity with NY?

Many states have signed an interstate agreement on reciprocity but it does not necessarily waive exam, fingerprinting or additional state specific requirements. Please see details on interstate agreements specifically the section What it is not. You MUST still apply for certification in each state that you wish to be certified to teach in.

Many states do not require that you hold NYS certification to apply in their state, only that you've completed a traditional state approved certification program plus complete their additional requirements such as exams and fingerprinting.

Some states do require that you hold certification in another state to apply for certification in their state.

It is best to check the certification website of the state you are hoping to be certified in and then check again closer to graduation as certification requirements change often. 

Requirements for all states can be found easily online by searching for state name and teacher certification. Look for a link for out of state prepared or out of state certified teacher which will outline the steps for you.

Direct link to the certification requirements in other states from teach.org

NYU Steinhardt will complete out of state verification forms required by the application process for other states, please see question 16.

While NYU Steinhardt can assist you in determining whether your program meets or will meet the requirements of certification in that state and which additional requirements you may need to complete, the state's department of education or certification office will ultimately determine if you have satisfied the certification requirements in their state upon application. If you have specific questions regarding a particular state's requirements or application process, please email or speak to one of their certification representatives.

16. Where can I send an out of state program verification form to be completed?

Please see Out of State Verification Forms.

17. I hold an Initial Certificate through my bachelor's degree, what are my Master's degree options for satisfying Professional Certification?

Please see NYSED Master's Degree Requirement and NYSED FAQ.

18. What if my Initial Certificate is nearing expiration or has expired and I haven't completed the requirements for Professional Certification?

You may be able to apply for a time extension or a reissuance.

As you would be applying directly to the NYSED for a time extension or re-issuance, please contact them with any questions you may have.

21.a. I've applied for Professional Certification and the three years of teaching experience that I've detailed on TEACH is listed as Deficient, why?

Your application is most likely listed as Ready for Review. Ready for Review means just that - your application hasn't been reviewed by an evaluator at the NYSED yet. The system defaults to "deficient" or "unmet" for some requirements until the application is evaluated, it actually means that those requirements have not been reviewed yet. Please see NYSED Experience Requirements.  Have your employer(s) submit the Verification of Paid Experience Form to the NYSED. The evaluation will change once your teaching experience and application is reviewed.

21.b. I've applied for Permanent School Counseling and the two years of work experience that I've detailed on TEACH is listed as Deficient, why?

The DASA workshop requirement is new effective December 31, 2013, please see details from NYSED. The pre-Summer 2013 Steinhardt Drug and Alcohol Ed, Child Abuse Id, School Violence Prevention course did not include DASA. The workshops in Child Abuse Id and School Violence Prevention do not satisfy the DASA requirement. No one is grandfathered in. 

24. What is my Professional Development obligation once I hold NYS Professional Certification?

Please see NYSED.

25.a. I completed the Drug and Alcohol Ed/Child Abuse Id/School Violence Prev course or the Drug and Alcohol Ed/Child Abuse Id/School Violence Prev/DASA course as part of my program and am now being asked for proof of completion or certificates of completion by an employer or another institution. How can I request these certificates?

Certificates of completion are not issued nor required by the NYSED when these competencies are met through coursework which appears on a university transcript. The NYSED states the following on their website: For applicants completing New York State registered teacher education programs leading to certification, workshop completion will not display in the workshop table on the NYSED TEACH system. Once a recommendation from the institution is made, the requirement will appear as “checked off”. The training is a required component of the program, and no additional training is required.

Please submit to your employer or institution this letter as well as an official transcript. Request an official transcript.

If however you want the workshops to appear on NYSED TEACH, you can request that the NYSED include them in the workshop table by making a request in writing and mailing your transcript.

Include cover letter with your name, the last four digits of your social security number and your date of birth and mail with transcript and a request that they include the workshops from Drug, Alcohol Ed/Child Abuse ID/School Violence or Drug, Alcohol Ed/Child Abuse ID/School Violence/DASA to:

Office of Teaching Initiatives
New York State Education Department

Albany, New York 12234

You'll want to wait until there is a grade on your transcript for the course before requesting and mailing your transcript.

25.b. I completed the DASA Training in Harassment, Bullying and Discrimination in Schools course as part of my program and am now being asked for proof of completion or a certificate of completion by an employer or another institution. How can I request this certificate?

A certificate of completion is not issued nor required by the NYSED when these competencies are met through coursework which appears on a university transcript. The NYSED states the following on their website: For applicants completing New York State registered teacher education programs leading to certification, workshop completion will not display in the workshop table on the NYSED TEACH system.

27. How can I order an official NYU transcript?

Please see NYU Student Information and Services.

28. When will I receive my diploma?

Please see NYU Registrar.

29. I am applying for a salary differential. How do I request an excess credit letter?

For the purposes of the NYCDOE and other school districts excess credits are those taken above and beyond your degree requirements. Excess credits are based on your bachelor's or master's number of required credits for the degree not the minimum number of credits required for a bachelor's or master's degree in New York State or for any other degree.

There is some general information on the NYCDOE website for employment in NYC Public Schools but steps and details have been moved behind NYCDOE log in portal.  The UFT also outlines the salary differential process on their website.

For example, if your program required 42 credits and you completed 42 credits then you have no excess credits (even if NYS minimum number of credits for a master's is 30). If your program required 42 credits but you graduated with 48 credits because you completed courses not required of your degree (study away, etc) then you potentially could have 6 excess credits.

You may request an excess credit letter by emailing [email protected]

30. I'm certified in another state or I completed a certification program in another state, how do I get certified in New York?

Classroom Teacher Professional Certificate Experience Requirement

For the Professional certificate in the classroom teaching service, individuals must complete at least three school years of teaching experience or its equivalent (540 full-time days). A maximum of 180 days will be accepted per school year (July 1 through June 30). Therefore, in order to satisfy this requirement, teaching experience must span at least three different school years.

Initial Certificate Issued Date

For individuals who were issued their first Initial teaching certificate on or after February 2, 2014, their teaching experience must be in the subject area of the certificate held to be acceptable for the Professional certificate. The issue date of the Initial certificate can be found in the Certificates section on the Account Information page in your TEACH account. The Issued/Effective Date is the date on which the certificate was issued and became valid (active).

For individuals who were issued their first Initial teaching certificate before February 2, 2014, their teaching experience does not need to be in the subject area of the certificate held to be acceptable for the Professional certificate.

Multiple Initial Certificates

Individuals who hold more than one Initial certificate may combine teaching experience gained under each of their certificates to satisfy the experience requirement for the Professional certificate.

  • For example, if an individual who holds/held a Childhood Education (Grades 1-6) certificate that was valid while teaching 4th grade for one year and holds/held a Students with Disabilities (Grades 1-6) certificate that was valid while teaching this population in this the grade level for two years could combine the three years of experiences and apply for the Professional certificate in either area as his/her first Professional certificate.

However, individuals who taught three or more years in one subject area must apply for the Professional certificate in that subject area as their first Professional Certificate.

Once an individual has been issued a Professional certificate, the experience requirement will be satisfied for any future Professional classroom teaching certificate applications.
