Student Certification Checklist (Only for candidates graduating after April 30, 2014)

The teacher certification office provides guidance to candidates who are completing or have completed a Lehman College Teacher Preparation Program that is designed to lead towards New York State certification. Upon official completion of their specific educator program and meeting Lehman College’s certification requirements, the candidate would be eligible for a college recommendation using a program code which is supplied by our office. Before students complete their Teacher Preparation Program at Lehman, they must create their own New York State TEACH Online Services account and submit an application & fee payment online for their certificates using the program code. New York State certification is the primary credential needed to teach anywhere in New York State including New York City.
