The Office of Curriculum, Instruction and Initial Educator Preparation processes all of the necessary paperwork for candidates who are applying for initial certification or who are adding fields to existing certificates in Georgia.  We also process applications for candidates who are applying for out-of-state positions.  It is the responsibility of the applicant to submit a complete application with all supporting documentation.  Please carefully check each item before submitting your application to be sure it is complete.

Applicants must meet all requirements before their applications are submitted to the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (GAPSC).  Here is the link to the GAPSC:
