(18 hrs. beyond degree initial/provisional teaching certificate)
Teachers are eligible for Professional Certification after completion of three years of successful teaching and 18 hours of credit earned in a planned program following the date of issuance of the provisional certificate. Students in master’s degree pro-grams may apply the first 18 hours of their degree program toward this requirement. Non-degree students who wish to be recommended for Professional Certification by Marygrove must develop a plan of work (18 credit hours) with the Teacher Certification Officer. A maximum of 6 credit hours completed at another accredited college or university may be accepted as part of the 18-hour planned program.
All applications to the Michigan State Department of Education for a Professional Teaching Certificate must be made through the Teacher Certification Officer. It is the responsibility of the student to follow through on this matter.
