How To Print Your Certificate – Educator Information System (EIS)

What Is The Educator Information System (EIS)?

The Educator Information System (EIS) is Maryland’s web-based source for educator certification. EIS provides educators with the tools necessary to complete an initial application for a Maryland certificate. It also provides those who already have Maryland certification with access to their personal information. In addition, it provides local school systems with the tools to enhance certification-related services for employed educators.

How Will I Receive My Certificate?

MSDE will no longer print Maryland certificates. Once your request for certification has been approved, you will be able to view, download, and print your certificate by logging onto www.mdcert.org new webpage. Providing an electronic “digital” certificate allows you immediate access, portability, and the ability to print or electronically transmit your certificate whenever you like.

How Do I Access EIS?

Individuals can access EIS through the home page of the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) at www.mdcert.org new webpage. Individuals will need to establish an access account by entering identifying information and creating a user ID and password. There are detailed instructions at the site to guide individuals through the process.
