How to Add an Additional Endorsement


All Endorsement Programs



 



(MAME, MASE, MSSP, MAELL, ENDELL)


Certified Maryland educators may add subjects/fields to their MD teaching certificates by either completing an approved program in the new certification area, completing 30 semester hours and assessments if applicable, or by submitting a qualifying score on the appropriate Praxis content assessment.  No pedagogy assessment is required to add an endorsement to a professional MD certificate. 

To add an endorsement via a credit count, submit the following to MSDE:

  • ​A cover letter with your name, mailing address, last 4 digits of your social security number, date of birth, personal email address, and the area of certification you are seeking.  ​
  • Official transcript(s) in an unopened mailer (if not previously submitted) for all course work taken (community college, baccalaureate, post-baccalaureate, if applicable) Student copies in an unopened mailer are also acceptable​​.

To add an endorsement by passing the Praxis content assessment, submit the following to MSDE:

  • ​A cover letter with your name, mailing address, last 4 digits of your social security number, date of birth, personal email address, and the area of certification you are seeking. ​
  • Qualifying scores on the Praxis content or ACTFL​ content assessment.

Note: The requirements to add an endorsement in Maryland are the same, whether you are adding an endorsement at a new grade level (Elementary to Secondary) or the same grade level (Secondary to Secondary).
