The OSPRA 103 is the form that sends your fingerprints from New York State to New York City. If upon receipt of your Applicant Gateway email, you see that your fingerprints are currently “processing” you will have to fill out the OSPRA 103 form.
As of July 1, 2020 the OSPRA 103 form can be emailed to HRCServiceCenter@schools.nyc.gov . Upon receipt your prints will be transferred free of charge from New York State to New York City. Partner Teachers who have previously worked for New York State may find that they need to fill out the OSPRA 103.
Note that very few candidates (fewer than 5%) need to file the OSPRA 103.
If you are uncertain about whether you fall into this category, please reach out to us.
