New York State Teacher Certification

We assist education students throughout the certification process.

The Office of Certification and Student Records serves as a resource for students, faculty and staff regarding certification information related to Adelphi University’s NYS approved teacher, administrative and pupil personnel preparation programs. Our goal is to provide access to updated information about NYS certification requirements, regulations and related topics.

We verify program completion for Adelphi University graduates and provide support throughout the NYS teacher certification process. We also assist candidates who are interested in applying for out-of-state certification.
