Connecticut Certification Procedures

The Connecticut State Board of Education is responsible for issuing teaching certificates required to teach in Connecticut public schools. Certification regulations are subject to change and the Connecticut State Board of Education requires students to meet the certification regulations in effect at the time they apply for certification. Therefore students are urged to apply for certification as soon as they complete their program and required certification tests.

The assistant dean of Education and Professional Studies is the CCSU Teacher Certification Officer. Questions concerning certification that cannot be answered by a department may be addressed to the assistant dean.

The instructions for down loading and completing the application for Connecticut certification can be found outside Barnard Hall 203. The completed forms are returned to the same office. While the assistant dean of the School of Education and Professional Studies recommends students completing CCSU programs for Connecticut certification, it is the State of Connecticut’s Bureau of Certification that makes the final determination about granting a certification.
