Certification

You have the education and the degree. Next step: certification.

Touro students who successfully complete a Master's program at the Graduate School of Education are eligible to apply online for New York State Teacher Certification. The NY State Education Department no longer accepts paper applications.

Create Your TEACH Account

To get started, visit the NYSED website and register for a secure TEACH account.

Once created, log-in to your TEACH account and follow our instructions to apply for certification online.

Notes on Applying

If you have fewer than three years of full-time teaching experience, apply for Initial Certification.

If you have at least three years of full-time teaching experience, apply for Professional Certification.

New York State Teacher Certification Examination (NYSTCE)

To be eligible to teach in New York, you must pass required certification exams and submit your online application to the NYSED. The NYSTCE will automatically report your scores to the NYSED Office of Teaching Initiatives, so they’re already on file when you apply for certification. 

Certification in Other States

To become certified to teach in a state other than New York, you must pass the required exams and apply for certification in that state. Students interested in teaching in New Jersey or Connecticut should complete a program verification form and have it signed by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs.

The Certification Office at the Graduate School of Education is here to advise current students and alumni regarding all matters relating to student certification.  We work with the faculty to ensure all programs are aligned with certification requirements and once you've completed one of our programs we submit a recommendation on Touro's behalf to recommend your teaching certification to the New York State Education Department, as well as Verification of Program Completion for students applying for certification in other states.
