TEACH Online Application Information Sheets

NYSED has an online system to apply for teaching certificates called TEACH Online. You should apply for your certificate as soon as possible so that all the elements needed for it, such as fingerprints, workshops, exam results, and college recomendations, can be collected and tracked in one place.

Here are the step-by-step directions for how to register, log-in, and apply for the appropriate teaching certificate. Please choose an informational sheet below that corresponds exactly with the degree and program in which you are currently enrolled at SUNY New Paltz.
