Stony Brook University has determined that the following recommended courses meet the NYSED guidelines for professional license in this certification content area. Courses with certain departmental subject codes (e.g., ARS, ARH, ART) may also be valid for the content area. In the past, this list also included multidisciplinary courses that required course validity forms. Due to changes in the NYSED regulations, Stony Brook no longer validates these courses and cannot include them in the recommended course list.
You may request review of any course that is not on this list.

of Student Responsibility
Students themselves—whether new, returning, or continuing—are responsible for reviewing, understanding, and adhering to their degree and/or certificate program requirements. (SPD’s Non-matriculating [non-degree] Graduate Students [GSP] are responsible for adhering to the guidelines related to non-matriculated status.) All SPD students are responsible for reviewing, understanding, and complying with University and SPD regulations, policies, and procedures, as described in all official publications, the University website, and the SPD website, including, but not limited to, SPD’s online references, the SPD Bulletin and SPD Academic Calendar.
