M.A.-TESOL Programs

Admission is for the Fall semester only. For best consideration, your application should be completed as early as possible, but the final deadline for applications is April 1 for international applicants and July 1 for domestic applicants.

Alternate route certification:

If you already have a NYS certification and your goal is to acquire an additional certification upon completion of the MA TESOL program, you must apply directly to NYS for "Individual Evaluation for an Additional Classroom Certificate" (Initial Certificate) . The requirements may be found here. An alternative pathway to your additional certification may be through contacting one of the BOCES Certification Officers listed below:
