Fingerprinting Information

All student teachers must be fingerprinted and cleared prior to the beginning of student teaching.

Fingerprinting should occur prior to the beginning of the term in which you are student teaching or sooner. Clearance can take up to three weeks or longer. Fingerprinting clearance is needed both for New York State Certification and the New York City License. Once you have been cleared at one level you can complete a waiver to have the City and State exchange information. Visit the New York State Education Department or New York City Department of Education websites for more explicit and current information.
