Professional Certification and Licensure
Forms that require proof of education from the Registrar’s Office for licensure including New York State Education Department (NYSED) Form 2: Certification of Professional Education and any out of state certification forms for licensure can be submitted by following the directions below.
Forms required for teaching certification including institutional recommendations must be submitted to UB’s Office of Educator Preparation.
Forms can take up to 10 business days to process. This may be extended during peak periods, specifically during the months of May and June due to degree conferral.
Please note: Clinical Social Work, Psychologist, and Nurse Practitioner forms require additional information from the academic department. These forms will be forwarded to the department on your behalf and then finalized by our office. Processing time may take beyond 10 business days.
Licensure forms including Form 2s are not accepted by email.
Option 1: Recommended
To have your form completed by our office, it is recommended that you request your transcript and upload your licensure form through Parchment. Orders placed through this service include expedited processing, order tracking, and secure delivery. Both electronic and paper transcript options are available. Current students can request their transcript in HUB utilizing the Grades and Awards tile. You can also access Parchment from our website if you do not have access to HUB.
As you move through your Parchment order, you will see the question “Is Your Attachment Complete?”
Please choose the following option as your response” "No, my attachment must be completed by the University before my transcript is sent (attachment must be uploaded below)".
The licensure form you upload will be completed by our office and the academic department, if applicable. It will then be sent out with your official transcript.
You can mail or fax the form. We will complete the form and mail in the form and transcript (if required) directly to NYSED by regular US mail. Please note that tracking and estimated delivery dates are not provided.
