Secretarial courses for licensing

School secretaries can fulfill licensing requirements, work toward differentials, and improve their knowledge and skills through the union’s credit-bearing courses designed especially for them.

School secretaries must earn 30 undergraduate credits within 3 years of getting their licenses to meet the NYC Department of Education requirements. Twenty-eight can be from any college courses, such as those offered through this program. The DOE requires a total of 2 credits in professional studies from courses in School Records and Accounts, such as OFFICE SYSTEMS AND PROCEDURES I. This course is a license requirement.

The OFFICE SYSTEMS AND PROCEDURES II course can be used as an elective for salary differentials and/or the initial 30 credit requirement. This course is not a license requirement, unless you were appointed as a school secretary before October, 2014.
