If you do not have a teaching credential for the state that you intend to sub in, then you will need to have at least a bachelor's degree to work as a Swing Sub.
Verify with Checkr
- Our partner Checkr helps us conduct education verification for potential Swing Subs. (You will not be charged.) All you have to do is:
- Log into your Swing Education Account
- Click the "Take me to Checkr" link
- Complete the Education Verification form
- Let us know once you have completed it by going to your Swing Education account and clicking "I Filled Out Checkr"
Why don't I see the option to complete Checkr?
Education verification through Checkr is only required in Washington D.C., New York City, Texas, and California (if you do not have a credential or sub permit). If you are not in these regions, you will not see this requirement.
I have a degree from outside the US, can I use that?
Yes! Checkr is able to verify international degrees.
How long does it take for Checkr to complete Education Verification?
The average processing time is 6 business days. For international degrees, the average processing time is 3 weeks.
