Educator Digital Document Upload
Please read the following information prior to beginning the upload process.
Document upload restrictions

  • The required file type for document uploads is limited to Portable Document Format (PDF) and file size to a maximum of 10 megabytes (MB).

  • The Bureau of Credentialing makes the final determination on the acceptance of application documents. We reserve the right to require additional verification when we deem it to be necessary.

  • If the name on a document does not match the name of the applicant, including due to name change for any reason, additional verification may be necessary before the document is accepted. Please be sure to list any additional names you may have had in your EIS profile under “Maiden” (even if the name is not a maiden name).

  • Once uploaded you cannot delete a document nor change the selected document type. It is the applicant’s responsibility to select the correct document type at the time of upload. If you select the incorrect document type please upload the document again with the correct document type. Do not contact us to correct the error as we will do this when we review your application if needed.

  • Only a limited set of document types (listed below) may be uploaded. Multiple document types must NOT be combined into a single PDF file for upload. Only where indicated below, multiple instances of a specific document type may be combined into a single PDF file for upload.

  • Where appropriate include the front and back sides of relevant pages. This is often the case for paper transcripts and educator credentials.

  • Do not upload transcripts that have an expiration date. These transcripts will ‘self-erase’ and disappear from our system on a specified date. At that time we will be unable to process your application. To date we have experienced this with many transcripts from National Student Clearinghouse. Instead, print the transcript and then scan back into a PDF to upload.

  • Whenever possible, please upload all documents applicable to your application in a single session or on the same day.

  • Please note: Failure to adhere to these restrictions may cause the upload process to fail and/or may cause a delay in processing of your application. A step-by-step guide with screen shots of the steps is included below.

Upload Information

 

Transcript, College

  • If you are submitting a transcript to document conferral of a degree, do not request an official copy of your transcript from your institution until the registrar’s office at your institution confers the degree on your transcript. This may be weeks after you graduate. Please contact your institution’s registrar’s office to confirm appropriate timing of request.

  • Must be uploaded separately for each institution, however each institution’s complete transcript should be uploaded as one document (not separate documents for each page of the transcript).

  • You should indicate the state and institution at time of upload (this feature is currently unavailable). If the institution does not appear on the dropdown list please leave that box blank.

  • We require transcripts with registrar’s signature visible. Please do not upload a transcript with white registrar’s signature as a black & white document or upload screenshots of online grade reports.

  • Applicants should also enter state, institution, degree, major(s), and degree conferral date in the Degrees section of their EIS profile. Enter 15 for day
    of month if no day is indicated on your transcript (e.g. 05/15/2015 for May 2015)

Verification of ‘Official’ college transcripts

  • The determination that the transcript is ‘official’ requires that the Registrar’s signature must be visible. The Bureau encourages the applicant to confirm visibility of this signature prior to submission of the transcript as well as after upload by viewing the image in EIS/Educator/View Your Credentials Here/Documents. If the registrar’s signature is not visible, the transcript will be considered unofficial.

  • An ‘electronic transcript’ is a transcript that is sent electronically to the Bureau of Credentialing or another designated recipient’s email address, usually from a transcript clearinghouse such as Credentials eSCRIP-SAFE or Parchment . Such a transcript may not necessarily include a registrar’s signature but is considered ‘official’ by the institution. The New Hampshire Department of Education, Bureau of Credentialing does not consider an electronic transcript that lacks a Registrar’s signature to be official unless the Bureau has received the transcript directly from the clearinghouse at credentialing.docs@doe.nh.gov

  • If you must mail a paper official transcript in a sealed envelope, please use the address here: Contact Us
