Generally speaking, any document (employment verification form, internship letter, course description, name change request form, official verification, etc.) whose scanned/copied image is legible when viewed by a licensure specialist, should be uploaded directly into your ELAR account. Academic PreK-12 forms and guides can be found on our Academic PreK-12 Forms, Guidelines, and Licensure Regulations web page.
