The New York State Teacher Certification Examinations™ (NYSTCE®) address New York Education Law and Commissioner’s Regulations, which require prospective New York State educators to pass designated tests as a requirement for receiving state certification. SUNY Oswego is an approved testing center for the NYSTCE®.
Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, testing is only available to SUNY Oswego students.
Pay and Register
To take a test, you must first complete the registration and payment process at the NYSTCE® program website.
Schedule Testing Appointment
Once you have registered to take a test, you may schedule your test appointment online 7 days per week, 24 hours per day. Test appointments are accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.
