International Educators

If you have completed an educator preparation program in a U.S. territory or another country, you may qualify for a Georgia educator certificate. It is important to note that you may have to fulfill some Special Georgia Requirements before receiving your Georgia certificate, or within a certain period of time after receiving your first certificate.

Please feel free to peruse the Special Georgia Requirements in order to determine what outstanding requirements you might face. However, if you have completed an educator preparation program and you submit a complete application package for Georgia certification, the GaPSC will evaluate your documents and outline any outstanding requirements you may need to fulfill.
