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.
As a matter of policy Queens College does not evaluate transcripts for individuals applying through an 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: (B) 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 may wish to include course descriptions in your correspondence with the NYSED. Queens College 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:

*When your transcript(s) are first received your application will be 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 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.
Please see Mentoring Requirement for Certification OR if you were mentored in a NYC Public School, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
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. 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. If you have further questions please contact the NYSED.
