Dear Candidate,

 

Welcome to the Teacher Certification main website page.

 

Section 3 at the bottom of this Introductory Page will be very helpful in describing the various components (seminars & tests) you will need as you go through your program.  Use this section as a guide and a checklist when you send in documents for certification purposes.  Make sure you complete taking all seminars and tests before you complete your program.

 

Section 1 contains information on the Teacher Certification Office.

 

Sections 2, 3, 4, & 5 deal specifically with steps you must take to apply for certification and consequent recommendation for certification through the Teacher Certification Office

 

Certification/Application/Recommendation Process

 

ALL STUDENTS SEEKING THEIR FIRST INITIAL CERTIFICATION ARE REQUIRED TO APPLY FOR CERTIFICATION AND BE RECOMMENDED THROUGH QUEENS COLLEGE TEACHER CERTIFICATION OFFICE. 

 

The certification process will be handled in the following manner:  

 

The letter you will receive from the Teacher Certification Office in the beginning the semester you are completing your program, begins the process of applying for certification and our consequent recommendation for certification.  Navigation of this website will guide you in applying for certification using the TEACH on-line system of the New York State Department of Education.

 

You are prompted to begin the process by using the link listed immediately below - www.qc.cuny.edu/Academics/Degrees/Education/Certification/Pages/default.aspx to:

  • * Immediately fill out the Institutional RecommendationRequest Form which prompts the Teacher Certification Office to create a file for you, collect documentation from you, and recommend you for certification
  • * After filling out the Institutional Recommendation Request Form apply for certification on the NYS TEACH Website.  Use the PowerPointPresentation Handbook tutorial link and use the Excel Spreadsheet link (which individually addresses your specific certification that you are seeking.  Use the Program Code to apply for your certification).  Apply regardless of whether you have taken all five of the seminars or completed the tests.  However, send in the documentation by the deadline dates so you can be recommended for certification
  • Use the Degree/Program Requirement Description links to help you determine what precise items are needed for you to fulfill your certification requirements both for Queens College and the State.  You will have to either email (barbara.eaddy@qc.cuny.edu) or fax (718-997-5467) documentation to the Teacher Certification Office.
  • Review further Informational Resources regarding certification throughout your career
  • Review the role of the TeacherCertification Office as you pursue your career
