Process for Submitting Transcripts

Official transcripts should be sent (mailed or emailed) directly to you or your employing school system and will be considered official.  These can be scanned and uploaded to TeachLALive! (https://ldoe.force.com/s/) with your certification request/application. Processing delays may be avoided by submitting transcripts with the application and payment confirmation receipt.


Certification Applications Updated

As laws and policies change, the information in the certification application packets must be updated to reflect those changes.  It is very important to use the current application when applying.  Application packets recently updated include:
  • Ancillary Certification Application (Revised October 1, 2020)
To access current application packets, visit "Certification Applications & Forms" page by clicking on the link within the menu on the right. Download the application to your computer, complete, save, then provide to your employer or upload it to the portal.
