Teacher Certification

Fingerprint Card/Employment Verification

Fingerprint Card

If you are not currently employed in a certified position in an Alaska Public School District, you must submit one (1) fingerprint card with your application.

You must have your fingerprints rolled or scanned by a trained technician. The technician must sign and date each card in the appropriate spaces on the fingerprint card. All personal information must be filled in on the card, including signature, residence, citizenship, sex, height, weight, race, eye color, date of birth, and place of birth.

If you need fingerprint card, email the teacher certification office at tcwebmail@alaska.gov and request one card to be sent to you.
