Initial Provisional Certificate: Information for New Teachers

The provisional certificate is valid for up to six (6) years. Check your certificate for its expiration date or look it up at Michigan Educator Certification Status.

All teachers must eventually advance from the provisional certificate to the Professional Education Certificate. A teacher with an expiring provisional certificate who doesn't qualify for a professional certificate may qualify for a three-year Provisional Renewal. A teacher with an expiring provisional certificate who does not qualify for a professional certificate or a provisional renewal may qualify for a two-year Extended Provisional Certificate.
