New York State has reciprocal teacher certification agreements with every state; however, each state has unique requirements. To find out the requirements for specific states, please access the Department of Education pages for each state.
If you need to verify the completion of a SUNY Potsdam approved teacher preparation program for certification purposes in another state, please send a completed Out of State Verification Form (accessible on each individual State site) and a stamped envelope containing the address to which you would like the verification sent. Send this to:
