SUNY New Paltz is approved by New York State Education Department (NYSED) to offer professionally certified teachers the opportunity to earn Continuing Teaching and Leader Education (CTLE) hours when enrolled in select graduate level courses as a non-degree student. CTLE offerings at SUNY New Paltz provide teachers with the required hours necessary for maintaining NYS professional teaching certification.
Applying for CTLE Credits.
Students who wish to earn CTLE hours for a graduate course must:
- Submit a Non-Degree Graduate Application along with an Approved Continuing Teacher and Leader Education Hour(s) Certificate. (NOTE: Applicants only need to complete Section I of the CTLE certificate prior to submission.)
- Upon receipt of a non-degree application, CTLE certificate request and course registration, the Office of Graduate & Extended Learning will work with the faculty and certification officer to ensure that the certificate request is processed.
CTLE Approval Process
- At the conclusion of the graduate course, the instructor will complete Section II of the certificate request if the student has:
- successfully completed the course with a grade of a B- or better
- satisfied the number of CTLE hours awarded. (NOTE: "Number of CTLE Hours Awarded" is equal to the number of course contact hours - e.g. a 3 credit graduate class requires 45 contact hours and is worth 45 CTLE hours).
- SUNY New Paltz's Authorized Certifying Office, Associate Dean Aaron Isabelle, will complete Section III for each certificate and return approved documents to the student via email. The student receives a completed certificate for each course from his/her instructor. As noted within the certificate instructions for trainees, all students must retain their own copy of each CTLE certificate for eight years, along with a transcript showing completion of the graduate course.
