(For persons who already have a Bachelor’s Degree)

APPLICATION CODE 137

For curriculum information, contact the Social Sciences and Teacher Education Division–Room ST-149–443-518-1620.

This course of study is designed for persons who already have a bachelor’s degree and wish to become a Certified Teacher in Maryland. Students may enroll in certification courses, but they should also have their college transcripts evaluated by the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) Division of Certification. Students must contact MSDE by logging on to www.marylandpublicschools.org or by calling the MSDE Certification Assistance Line at 410-767-0412 to learn about the transcript evaluation process. The courses listed below will satisfy most if not all of the coursework requirements on the MSDE Evaluation Form for Certification. Upon receipt of the transcript evaluation, students may use the following charts to determine what courses Howard Community College offers that meet the MSDE Professional Education course requirements. Please note: 1) All certification areas require passing scores on *the basic skills tests, 2) all certification areas require documented teaching experience before an initial certificate is awarded; Howard Community College does not provide this documented teaching experience or offer a student teaching course, and 3) additional Professional Education courses may be required in some certification areas. These options do not provide a complete certification program or lead to a credential from HCC.

*Students in a Teacher Education transfer pattern must submit qualifying scores as established by the State Superintendent of Schools on pre-professional basic skills tests (e.g., SAT, ACT, PRAXIS/CORE) approved by the State Board of Education to the Social Sciences and Teacher Education division prior to the completion of the 30th credit hour. Scores from the basic skills tests are used for admission to four-year Teacher Education programs and are required for teacher certification in Maryland and most other states.
