Certificate Reciprocity Approach (Out-Of-State) (CT)

You need to login or register to save this route.


Connecticut participates in the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Interstate Agreement (NIA). Under this agreement, Connecticut may accept completion of a state-approved educator preparation program at a regionally accredited college or university from another U.S. state or territory, or a minimum of 30 months of successful full-time experience under the other state’s valid educator certificate (at least equivalent to a Connecticut initial educator certificate), appropriate to the subject area being requested. Depending on qualifications and experience, the applicant may qualify for an Initial, Provisional, or Interim certificates. Those out-of-state applicants who meet all certification criteria except Connecticut assessment requirements may be issued a nonrenewable interim certificate with a deferral for the required tests. If educators hold a master’s degree in the academic subject area (e.g. math, sciences) for which Connecticut certification is being requested they may also be exempt from Board-approved assessment requirements, including Praxis II subject knowledge tests, Connecticut Foundations of Reading, Reading Specialist or Early Childhood tests, and/or ACTFL OPI and WPT.
