I have my Residency Certificate, how long do I have to obtain Professional Certification?

Posted by:

Your Residency Certificate is valid for five years.  If you have not completed requirements for the Professional Certificate during that five-year period, you may renew your Residency Certificate once, for a two-year period, if the college/university in whose program you are enrolled verifies that you are making satisfactory progress in the program.

If you have not completed provisional status with a school district, and thus cannot be admitted to a Professional Certificate program, you may renew your Residency Certificate once, for a five-year period, upon completion of fifteen quarter (ten semester) credits since the issuance of the Residency Certificate.

Any other renewal would require an appeal to the State Board of Education.
