The New York State Education Department (NYSED) requires that any individual applying for New York State Certification be fingerprinted.
Additionally, SUNY Potsdam requires that education candidates complete the NYSED fingerprint clearance process prior to the start of any field experience.
NYSED is no longer processing fingerprint applications and the new process can be found on their website.
For any assistance with this process, please see the Center for School Partnerships and Teacher Certification.
