Demonstrated Competencies: Transcript Analysis (DCTA)

Only Administrator endorsements are available through transcript analysis:

 

The Demonstrated Competencies: Transcript Analysis (DCTA) pathway requires that all content knowledge and proficiency standards have been met through formal coursework documented on official transcripts. In addition to requisite coursework, applicants for licensure by transcript analysis must meet all additional endorsement-specific requirements including degree and educator experience requirements as specified in the applicable licensure standards.

It is the nature of the educational administration career lattice that these endorsements have many competencies in common. For that reason it may be possible for an educator who has completed a program leading to one administrator license subsequently to qualify for an additional endorsement through the completion of targeted coursework rather than through the completion of an entire program. As stated above, specific degree and educator experience requirements still apply.

Note: Course titles will not necessarily match the core content area names.

If you have determined that you are eligible for this pathway (see below), please follow the Application Instructions.

The following documentation should be submitted via your myNHDOE/EIS/Educator account at the time of application if not already on file with the Bureau of Credentialing:

  • All relevant official college transcripts

  • Employer verification of applicable work experience

  • Reference letters that specifically address leadership abilities

 

For Assistant Superintendent and Associate Principal requirements via Transcript Analysis, please submit a Credentialing Help Desk request.
