How do I receive the NYSED program code needed for the TEACH system?

You will initially receive program codes and other important TEACH instructions via the "Student Information Sheet" (SIS) provided by the Registrar's Office.

The instructions provided here will also guide you if you have lost your program code, or if you need to obtain the SIS after your degree has been conferred.

The SIS will be provided as you prepare to have your degree conferred, and after a TEACH authorization is submitted. Please retain the SIS for future reference. The code and instructions will be needed to apply for future certificates, including professional certificates.

Even if you have completed an undergraduate form, you must complete one for the graduate level. To remain compliant with FERPA and campus security policies, no graduate level recommendation or data release can occur based on the undergraduate submission.
