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 CA-1
Once an application is processed by the UC Certification Office, candidates may check the status of their CA-1 application by logging on to the EPSB website at www.kyepsb.net and accessing "View my Application History".
