Professional Licensure by State - Michigan

Michigan has signed an Interstate Compact Agreement (ICA) with every state agreeing to accept out-of-state teacher preparation programs and teaching certificates on a reciprocal basis for initial certification. The Standard Teaching Certificate and the Standard CTE Certificate are the initial certificate issued to teachers who have completed an approved out-of-state teacher preparation program. An applicant who has completed a state-approved teacher preparation program including student teaching in another state can submit an application to   be evaluated for certification.

Approval Status

Pima Community College’s Post Baccalaureate Teacher Education Program meets the academic requirements for initial certification.
