Step 1: Establishing Eligibility

Certificate of Eligibility (CE)

The Certificate of Eligibility (CE) is issued to an individual who has not completed a teacher preparation program but meets the basic requirements for certification, including academic study and applicable test requirements. The CE authorizes an individual to seek and accept employment in New Jersey public schools requiring certification.  

The Certifications and Endorsements webpage outlines the requirements for certificates.
