Certification in Other States
Completion of New York certification requirements and Teachers College programs does not automatically translate into certification or licensure in other states.
If you plan on seeking certification outside of New York State, it will be to your advantage to investigate certification requirements for that state. When applying for certification in other states, there may be additional courses and exams required by the state where you seek certification. In most states, applicants may be issued a temporary license for one to two years, during which additional requirements must be completed.
More information can be found by contacting the State Department of Education or visiting the website of the state in which you are interested.
Please note, individual state requirements and contact information are subject to change.
