You need to login or register to save this route.


Candidates who currently reside and teach in another country or who completed their educator preparation program in another country may be eligible to apply for certification in South Carolina. International educators may have their out-of-country preparation programs and coursework evaluated by an approved credential evaluation service for consideration as part of the Initial Certificate Application Process for International Educators. The South Carolina Office of Educator Services does not review documents from other countries. Therefore, to apply for certification, a detailed course-by-course translation and evaluation report of foreign transcript(s) stating degree equivalency from an approved agency must be submitted as part of the application. Approved agencies can be found on the following website
