School of Education: Certification & Exams



The teacher certification office provides guidance to candidates who are completing or have completed a Lehman College Teacher or Leader or Counselor preparation program that is designed to lead towards New York State certification. Upon official completion of a specific educator program and meeting Lehman College’s certification requirements, the candidate would be eligible for a college recommendation using a program code, which is supplied by our office. Before students complete their Teacher or Leader or Counselor program at Lehman, they must create a New York State TEACH Online Services account and submit an application & fee payment online for their certificates using the program code. New York State certification is the primary credential needed to teach anywhere in New York State including New York City.

At Lehman College, every degree and certificate program has different requirements and each individual student has his/her own specific requirements based on how much is already met/not met. It is important to check in with the Certification Officer in addition to your own program advisor! You must review and confirm your specific certification requirements once you are enrolled in an education program at Lehman.
