Proof of Teacher Certification

The following degree and certificate programs require that students are certified teachers at the time of admission and for the duration of the program. This is because these programs may lead to certain state of Maine endorsements that require provisional or professional teacher certification.

What to Submit for Evidence of Teacher Certification

Applicants to these programs must submit EVIDENCE of TEACHER CERTIFICATION when applying to the program. This evidence should be a copy of your teacher certification from the state in which you are certified. Teacher certification must be at the level of provisional or professional, and not at the level of conditional certification.

Please note: In addition, applicants to the Educational Leadership Program must submit evidence of three years of classroom teaching in a K-12 setting.

Waiver of the Admission Requirement

Students seeking exemptions to either of these requirements must write a request for a waiver of the appropriate requirement that includes both an explanation and justification for the request.
