The Certification application process begins based upon the posted conferral date on official transcript.  It is not processed on the date your certification application was uploaded and received.

Due to COVID-19, and now a State of NJ furlough there may be delays with timing of issuing certificates.  You will receive an email survey from the State of NJ DOE once we have submitted your application.  After receiving this email survey, you can begin checking the status of issuance around 4 weeks following the email survey.   We have been working diligently with the NJ DOE with processing and issuance of certificates in lite of the pandemic.  Thank You.
