Certification

Certification is the process in which a candidate is recommended for licensure and/or rank change. Upon completion of a degree, certification or rank change program, it is the responsibility of the candidate to submit the appropriate certification paperwork to the Certification Office.

University of the Cumberlands can only submit a recommendation for certification and/or rank change completed through this institution.

Applications for teacher certification/rank change should be turned in to the appropriate certification specialist no earlier than three weeks prior to program completion. Applications for certification/rank change are processed upon verification of successful completion of required assessments and receipt of the candidate’s official transcript verifying completion of the program.

Check status of TC1
Once an application is processed by the UC Certification Office, candidates may check the status of their TC1 application by logging on to the EPSB website at www.kyepsb.net and accessing "View my Application History".
