Completion of a Buffalo State Educator Preparation Program leads to a college recommendation for NYS Teacher Certification. Buffalo State cannot determine the acceptability of an Educator Preparation Program for licensure/certification in another US State or Territory.
Please access Buffalo State’s Full Interstate Disclosure Document, which includes a full list of education departments for other states and territories.
Each state has unique requirements for teacher certification/licensure. To find out the requirements for a specific state, please access the Department of Education homepage for that state.
OUT OF STATE EDUCATOR PREPARATION PROGRAM VERIFICATION
If you need to verify the completion of a Buffalo State College approved teacher preparation program for certification purposes in another state, please submit an online Student Release of Records Form. In addition to the release of records form, we will need the out of state verification form for your new state with any personal information sections completed by you. You may either email the out of state verification form to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail the out of state form, along with a stamped envelope containing the address to which you would like the verification mailed once complete, to the TCO at the address below.
You may also complete a paper Student Release of Records Form and send all forms to the TCO.
