Welcome to the Certification Branch Portal!

Educator Information System Portal

The portal is for the use of educators who hold or wish to hold a Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) educator certification.
For other general inquiries about credentialing, please refer to the MSDE Certification home page.

MSDE's Certification Educator Portal allows users to apply for certification, print their certificate, update demographics, and view the status of submitted requests.
Educators should create a Portal account prior to submitting documentation and/or fees to MSDE.

If you do not have an existing account and have held a certificate in the state of Maryland, you will not be able to create an account on the educator portal.
If you are not able to create a Portal account and would like to request a copy of your Maryland certificate, please fill out the Official Certificate Request.
Questions regarding certification should be directed to the Certification Call Center Assistance Line, 410-767-0412 or Toll Free, 866-772-8922.
All technical issues should be directed to eishelp.msde@maryland.gov

Technical issues should be directed to the EIS Help Desk at eishelp.msde@maryland.gov
