Fingerprinting clearance is one of the requirements of the New York State Education Department for certification. We highly recommend candidates complete the fingerprinting process one semester prior to placement. Many of the school districts SUNY Oswego candidates are placed in are now requiring candidates to complete the fingerprinting process prior to placements being approved.

The fingerprinting process has undergone major changes as of summer 2015. NYSED is no longer processing fingerprint applications, and SUNY Oswego University Police can no longer provide fingerprinting services for teacher certification.

To Complete the Fingerprinting Process:

Go to the IdentoGo website for Certification (14ZGQT).  Find a fingerprinting location that you can get to, Schedule an appointment, and fill out the application.  Please keep your receipt to submit with your Field Experience application for Fingerprinting verification.
