Michigan Teacher Reciprocity Agreements

Michigan offers two types of certification to teachers from out-of-state who wish to teach in a Michigan classroom. The first option, Provisional Certificate, is for teachers from out-of-state who hold a valid teaching certification, but do  not meet Michigan's examination requirements. The second certification is the Professional Education Certification, which is available to teachers from out-of-state who hold a valid teaching certification and have met the examination requirements of Michigan. To learn more about the certification process, explore the Michigan Department of Education website or call (517) 373-3310.
