Program Registration

The New York State Education Department must review, approve and register every curriculum (program) creditable toward a degree at a New York State college or university before the institution may offer the program. This webpage provides information and resources related to program registration for New York State degree-granting institutions.

Out-of-state institutions seeking to offer credit-bearing programs in New York state should visit the Permission to Operate in NYS web page.

Teacher certification students and candidates: the Office of Teaching Initiatives provides information about education and other requirements for a teaching certificate, including guidance on distance education options.
