Out-of-state teacher candidates who do not hold a professional certificate from their respective state must meet Maryland's testing requirements at the time of application. A candidate who holds a certificate from another state may be eligible for a test exemption. Please visit our Routes to Certification page for more information.
Choosing MSDE as a recipient of a test score during administration will not fulfill this requirement. The applicant/educator must submit a copy of the score report directly to the MSDE Office of Certification as part of their application packet.
