Applying for Certification

If you have completed a UAS AKCOE program that results in teacher certification or endorsement you must complete the following:

  1. Complete the request form for the State-Approved Program Verification Form.
  2. Find the appropriate certification form from the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development website. Follow the directions to complete the application.
  3. UAS AKCOE will email you and DEED a completed Program Verification form. This process can take three to six weeks from when we receive your request.
  4. You do not need to wait for your program verification form us. Complete and send in your packet to DEED when you degree is posted. 
  5. Once your certification application is complete, make a copy of the packet for your own records and mail the originals to the Alaska Department of Education and Early Development.
