Learn how to renew a Professional Educator Certification or reinstate a Professional Educator Certification in New Hampshire.

 

Teaching Certification Renewal

Certified teachers in New Hampshire who are currently employed in a New Hampshire school system may renew their teaching credentials online via the Educator Information System (EIS). Renewal payments may be made online and superintendent recommendations for teacher renewal are also to be submitted online. The superintendent recommendation verifies that you have completed adequate professional development during the term of your certificate for renewal. Contact the Professional Development Committee in your school district for information on the renewal process.

If you are not employed in a New Hampshire school system and wish to renew your teaching certificate, you must submit proof of 75 continuing education units during the past three years of the validity of your certificate. This must include 30 units for each area of endorsement and 45 units relating to educator competency. Examples of acceptable types of continuing education may be found here. Renew your teaching credential using this form.

Reinstatement of Certification

If your New Hampshire teaching certificate has expired, you must show proof of 75 continuing education units (as above) taken within the past three years. You will be responsible for renewal late fees as applicable. If your credential expired more than eight years ago, you must start all over and apply for certification again via a paper form, as your paper records will have been expunged.
