There are at least a couple of reasons why aspiring teachers might want to study and teach in New York. Besides the opportunity to live in the New York City, students can choose from more than 100 colleges and universities, which offer almost any kind of teaching degree possible as well as licensure, specialization and certification programs. Upstate New York, Western New York, and rural areas of the state have numerous colleges to offer.

Additionally, New York ranks 1st in the nation in terms of wages paid to elementary, middle school and secondary school teachers.

Listed below are some of the top colleges and universities in New York as well as a few of their programs.

  • 705 teaching programs in New York accredited by CAEP
  • 246 CAEP-accredited Bachelor's degrees
  • 378 CAEP-accredited Master's degrees in New York

The Office of Teaching Initiatives sets the stipulations to teach in New York. As with all states, a Bachelor's degree, a teacher certification program, and content exams are required. Exams include the Educating All Students test that measures direct teacher knowledge and skills.

Requirements to Teach in New York

Passing the edPTA that measures teaching instructional practices and performance is required of all prospective teachers. The appropriate Content Specialty Test is required of those who teach core subjects. After completion of the requirements, an applicant is issued an initial certificate that is valid for five years.

The entry-level certificate leads to professional certification that is an advanced license, continually valid as long as the teacher complete the required professional development hours within five years. Many schools seek accreditation through the Council for the Accreditation of Educator Preparation.

It is not mandatory but is highly regarded for its stringent standards reputation. Those who attend out-of-state teacher preparation programs are possibly eligible for New York educator's certification if the program is deemed comparable to that of New York state-approved programs.

Scholarships/Financial Aid Available

New York State and federal financial aid are available to help students pay for college. Here are the steps to the application process.

  1. Complete the FAFSA. The information provided determines the eligibility and amount for federal financial aid.
  2. New York resident apply for TAP. It is a Tuition Assistance Program offered by the state. The award is a grant and does not have to be repaid.
  3. Apply for New York State scholarships and awards
  4. Check with the college of choice to see if there are applications for institutional aid.
  5. Ask the high school counselor about awards and scholarships offered by the community organizations, clubs, and groups.
  6. Compare the college award letters sent from each college of acceptance that details the financial aid package.
  7. Apply for student loans if necessary. Federal loans carry low, fixed-rates for parents and students. Apply for private loans if there is still a gap in finances after applying for all other sources.

Requirements to Qualify for In-State Tuition

The difference between out-of- and in-state tuition in New York is not as drastic as it is in many states, but it is still significant. Those under 21 must meet strict financial independence requirements. Other than financial independence, students must be U.S. citizens, permanent residents, or qualify for immigration status.

The principal place of abode must have been New York for a minimum of 12 consecutive months immediately before the first day of class. They must have the intention of permanently living in New York. Students under 24 are deemed dependent students and have the same state residency as their parents or guardians.

New York does not participate in a regional reciprocity agreement for undergraduates. There are no special deals with nearby states for students who leave or come to New York. Each college has interpretations of in-state regulations.
