Certificate Reciprocity Approach (Out-Of-State) (MD)

You need to login or register to save this route.


Certification seekers, who have graduated from an out-of-state educator preparation program and do not have teaching experience or an out of state certificate, follow the same certification route as those who have completed an in-state educator preparation program.  If a certification seeker holds an active professional ​certificate from another state, has completed an educator preparation program and met the issuing state’s qualifying test scores to receive certification, he or she may qualify for a reciprocal license. Applicants must present Maryland certification assessments, or the valid professional certificate earned from the out-of state-program along with the assessments taken to achieve the certificate.  Two years of satisfactory experience may be presented in place of the assessments taken in that state. A useful overview of MD certification system and how it compares to the licensing structures of states preparing the majority of MD teachers (Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia) can be found here: http://marylandpublicschools.org/stateboard/Documents/03262019/TabD-TeacherLicenses.pdf
