Teacher Certification

The Maine Department of Education has the sole authority to issue certificates for teaching. However, the Office of the Dean of the College of Education & Human Development is in a position to advise prospective teachers concerning certification.

Upon successful completion of the education program, students are eligible for a Maine professional teaching certificate at either the elementary or secondary level. The college also provides an Education minor for students who wish to pursue teacher certificates in Maine.

It is the student’s responsibility to secure current certification information and the actual certification directly from the Maine Department of Education: https://www.maine.gov/doe/cert.
