Important information regarding International Students registering for the edTPA

When registering for the edTPA, international students without a valid Social Security number (SSN) should not enter any number (including a temporary number assigned by the NYCDOE) and leave the SSN section blank. You will then receive a message that states "The SSN that you entered is not valid. If you do not have a valid SSN, please click here." In the next window you must acknowledge that you have no valid SSN. The system will then let you proceed with the registration process.
