Out-of-State Educators

Enhanced Reciprocity

The CSDE Bureau of Educator Standards and Certification is pleased to announce an additional pathway for educators to apply for and obtain certification if they hold a valid out-of-state fully licensed educator certificate equivalent to at least Connecticut’s initial educator certificate from select states.

Interstate Agreement

For states that do not participate in enhanced  reciprocity, Connecticut participates in the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC) Interstate Agreement (NIA).
