For those who are already certified and who wish to become certified in another area or additional grade levels, we offer the opportunity to complete the coursework required for certification through individual evaluation by New York State. In these cases, under New York State regulations, candidates can apply for additional certification directly to NYS Education Department, using graduate courses they have taken at Manhattanville. All of the teaching certification areas that we offer are available to these candidates. This route to certification may be subject to NYSED deadlines for completion. In addition to graduate coursework, additional Liberal Arts requirements and additional testing may be required.
Careful advising and specific choices of courses is required for such certification and interested students are advised to consult closely with the Graduate Advising Office or NYSED at www.nysed.gov Responsibility for certification resides strictly with NYSED. Thus, we can advise candidates to the best of our ability, but NYS ED is the final arbiter.
Please note if you are seeking your first certificate through Individual Evaluation, there is a deadline for completion of all requirements, August 31, 2013. This does not apply to those already certified seeking additional certificates.
