The Bureau of Certification is currently experiencing technical issues with the clearing of criminal background checks for issuance of educator certifications, authorizations, and permits. We are currently working to resolve this issue with our state partners and hope to have this situation rectified as soon as possible. Thank you.

Applying for a Connecticut educator certificate after your certificate has expired 

If your certificate has expired or lapsed, you may still be eligible for a new certificate. This applies for all certificate types.

Please submit an ED 170 application to renew or advance your provisional certificate. The certificate level will be determined after we receive and review your application and supporting documentation.
