Teaching Certificates

Present-day education is characterized by specialization at the secondary and elementary levels, related to both subject-matter fields and the age of school children. The Michigan Certification Code provides for specialization in either the elementary, or secondary school areas by authorizing state certification for teaching on those levels. Thus, a person who has kindergarten through grade eight endorsement is not legally qualified to teach in the secondary schools above grade eight, and a person with grades six through twelve endorsement is not legally qualified to teach below grade six. An exception is made in certain fields such as art, physical education, dance and music education, where the holder of a provisional certificate is qualified to teach his/her major subject in all grades, and, if indicated by his/her certificate, other subjects in other grades.

The certification code recognizes subject-matter specialization by requiring that the candidate for a teacher's certificate present concentrations of credits called majors and minors. In general, the secondary school teacher must have a major and minor teaching field. The elementary school teacher must have one of the following options:

  1. a core subject major or two minors and the Elementary Planned Program or
  2. a student-centered program and the Elementary Comprehensive Major.

The Elementary Planned Program/Comprehensive Major is a series of courses designed to support the teaching of all subjects K-5: Health and Physical Education, Language-Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Technology and the Arts. All majors and minors must be in subject-matter fields appropriate to teaching at the level for which certification is to be recommended. Individuals must pass state examinations in their major and minor fields before they begin student teaching.

Certification Requirements

Michigan State Teacher's Certificates are granted by the Michigan State Board of Education upon the recommendation of the College of Education. Initial certificates are provisional for a six-year period and may advance to a five-year professional certificate after completing additional requirements. Five-year professional certificates must be renewed every five years. Contact a College of Education advisor for additional information. Certificates will indicate in which grades and subjects the holder is eligible to teach. In certain specified nonacademic fields, however, the holder of a provisional certificate is eligible to teach his/her major subject in all grades from the kindergarten through the twelfth. The qualifications which the College requires for recommendation for the certificate are summarized below.

State Professional Readiness Examination (PRE)

All students seeking admission to a M.A.T. or post-bachelor teacher certification program are required to pass the State PRE prior to admission to the teacher certification program. The test results must be furnished directly to Wayne State University by Evaluation Systems Group of Pearson, the testing agency. When registering for the test, students should select "Wayne State University (31)" as a "College or University to Receive Scores."

Provisional Certificates

Teaching certificates as listed below are granted when all certification requirements have been met, which usually occurs upon the completion of the professional education sequence of the M.A.T. program.

Elementary Provisional Certificate—for Kindergarten through Grade Five all subjects, Kindergarten through Grade Eight in a self contained classroom, and Kindergarten through Eight in subjects corresponding to majors and minors.

  1. The candidate must have graduated with a bachelor's degree from an approved or accredited institution.
  2. Students seeking elementary certification must meet major/minor requirements according to the curriculum guide see academic advisor. All Elementary Programs must include the Planned Program/ Comprehensive Major.
  3. Completion of a professional education sequence is required.
  4. Teaching candidates are required by the Michigan State Department of Education to obtain First Aid and Adult and Child CPR Certification, by a state approved program, before they can be recommended for a teaching certificate in the State of Michigan. Also, a Michigan State Police Criminal Background check no more than six months old is required.

Secondary Provisional Certificate—for Grades Six through Twelve

  1. The candidate must have graduated with a bachelor's degree from an approved or accredited teacher education institution.
  2. In general, the academic background must include a single subject major or a group major, and one minor in subjects in which the applicant expects to teach that are appropriate to the Secondary level. Some subjects are available as comprehensive group majors; a minor is not required.
  3. Career and Technical Education (CTE) Majors in Health Occupations and Trade and Industry must have two majors: An academic major and the CTE major. A minor is not required.
  4. Completion of a professional education sequence is required.
  5. Teaching candidates are required by the Michigan State Department of Education to obtain First Aid and Adult and Child CPR Certification, by a state approved program, before they can be recommended for a teaching certificate in the State of Michigan. Also, a Michigan State Police Criminal Background check no more than six months old is required.

Certificate Endorsement

Holders of one level of certificate who wish to add another level (i.e., elementary to secondary or vice versa) must consult an advisor in the Division of Academic Services, 489 Education Building.

Professional Education Certificate

This certification is available to holders of provisional certificates who have taught successfully for three years since the issue date, and within the validity and grade level of the teaching certificate after the issue date of their Provisional certificate and have completed within 5 years prior to application 6 credits or 150 State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs) or 150 District Provided Professional Development (DPPDs) or have a master's degree. Professional development opportunities may be combined with university credits to meet the academic requirement. A course in Assessment and Differentiated Instruction in Reading is also required (RLL 6801 for Elementary teachers or RLL 6802 for Secondary teachers).

In addition to the above requirements, all candidates for an elementary five-year professional certificate must have completed the six credits in reading instruction in either their undergraduate or postgraduate preparation, three of which must be reading in the content areas.

In addition to the above requirements, all candidates for a secondary five-year professional certificate must have completed in their undergraduate or post-graduate preparation a three-credit course in reading in the content areas.

Bilingual/Bicultural Endorsement

The Bilingual Endorsement certifies a teacher who is qualified to teach classes of bilingual children. Students qualifying for an initial provisional certificate complete a twenty-four credit minor for the endorsement. Students holding existing certificates may add a bilingual endorsement by completing a minimum twenty-credit planned program. Interested students should consult a Bilingual/ESL advisor.

All students in the bilingual-bicultural program must successfully complete the language proficiency examinations in English and the designated language of his/her individual program prior to taking courses for this minor.

English as a Second Language Endorsement

The English as a Second Language (ESL) Endorsement certifies a teacher who is qualified to teach learners with limited English proficiency. Students holding existing certificates may add an ESL endorsement by completing a minimum twenty-credit planned program. Interested students should consult a Bilingual/ESL advisor.

Early Childhood General and Special Education (ZS) Endorsement

The Early Childhood General and Special Education (ZS) endorsement is designed to ensure that teachers working with children from birth to the age of eight years and their families obtain specialty area preparation in early childhood education (ECE) to include working with children  with developmental delays or disabilities. Teachers holding an elementary certificate must complete 26-credit hours of course work, lead-teaching experience with two age groups, and pass the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC) to obtain the ZS endorsement. The endorsement program consists of a minimum of 26 credits across specified areas beyond the Provisional Certificate requirements and lead-teaching experience in teaching two of the following three age levels:

  1. infant toddlers,
  2. preschool,
  3. kindergarten third grade, to include experience with Individual Family Service Plan (IFSP) and/or Individual Education Program (IEP) for young children receiving special education.

The courses may be part of a master's, education specialist, or doctor of education program. Interested students should consult an ECE advisor.

K-12 Reading Endorsement

The K-12 Reading Specialist Endorsement is designed to prepare teachers to provide specialized instruction in reading within classrooms or in special programs at all grade levels in elementary, middle, and secondary schools to work with teachers in classrooms to improve literacy instruction and to supervise school or district level reading programs. Teachers holding an elementary or secondary certificate must complete a twenty-four credit program and then pass the State K-12 Reading Specialist examination in reading in order to receive this endorsement. The courses may be part of a master’s, education specialist, or doctor of education program. Interested students should consult a reading program advisor.

Middle Level Endorsement

The Middle Level Endorsement is a minimum twenty-credit planned program which adds an area of expertise for teachers who already hold a Michigan elementary or secondary teaching certificate. The endorsement extends Michigan teacher subject area certification to include grades five through nine.
