In New York State (NYS) the terms "certification" and "verification" may differ from those utilized in your jurisdiction. It is important you understand NYS’s terminology so the correct request is submitted.

  1. Request for Certification of Licensure 

    To request certification of licensure in New York State please complete and submit the Online License Certification and Verification Form and fee.
