To ensure efficiency in the certification process, the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) will be moving to a fully electronic certification process. As of February 1, 2020, the NJDOE will no longer accept paper documents for certification purposes. As we gradually move to a fully electronic process, there may be delays in processing paper documents. 

Please email any letters, copies of out-of-state certification or other required documents directly to certapplication@doe.nj.gov. Please have your university, college, school or clearinghouse email electronic transcripts or the Verification of Program Completion Form directly to certapplication@doe.nj.gov.

If you have any questions, please contact us at  Licensing.Requests@doe.nj.gov  or call us at 609-292-2070.
