Student Conduct and Academic Integrity

Receiving State-Approved Program Verification Form

  1. If you have completed a UAA program that results in a certification or endorsement, apply for graduation from UAA.
  2. UAA School of Education will verify that you've met the requirements of your program and complete the State-Approved Program Verification Form, submitting the completed form it to the UAA Records Office for further processing.
  3. The UAA Records Office will email the completed form to you. You can then order your official transcripts. Prior to ordering your transcript, you are strongly encouraged to view your unofficial transcript on uaonline to verify the CAEP posting has been completed. Verification forms can take three to six weeks to be completed.
  4. Once you have the certification application in order, make a copy of the packet for your own records then mail the originals to DEED.

Requesting Out-of-State Certification or Endorsement

Email the form from the state you are requesting certification for to uaa_soedu@alaska.edu. The School of Education will verify that you've met the requirements of your program, complete the form and return it to you.
