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

You need to login or register to save this route.


There are two pathways to certification for those seeking certification based on reciprocity: reciprocity for out-of-state certification holders and reciprocity for out-of-the-state program completers. Both cases are eligible to pursue RI certification where similar certificate areas exist.

The reciprocity pathway recognizes full and aligned out-of-state certificates and leads to full RI certification, maintaining compliance with current RI testing requirements. The out-of-the-state program completers pursuing this pathway should review the RI certification and testing requirements prior to submitting an application. Applicants must include official student-issued transcripts and/or letter of verification of a completed approved program stating the content and grade range in the application packet.
