MSDE Digital Certificate

Details about Maryland’s web-based Educator Information System (EIS)

Since 2006, Maryland’s web-based Educator Information System (EIS) provides educators with access to their personal certification information, including their “digital” certificate which can be downloaded and printed as needed. PAPER CERTIFICATES ARE NO LONGER ISSUED BY MSDE. Local school systems have also been provided with the tools to enhance certification-related services for employed educators. You can access your certificate at any time and as often as you like. Keep reading to learn important details!

How to Access Your Digital Certificate


IMPORTANT:  If you did not have a portal username and password prior to the conversion to the new EIS, you will not be able to access your records; therefore you will need to contact the Certification Unit to check the status of and to request a copy of your digital certificate.

  1. Be sure to DOWNLOAD and RETAIN important renewal requirements/information. As stated on your certificate, “It is the responsibility of the holder of this certificate to know the current certification requirements and to renew this certificate prior to the expiration date.”
  2. Then, click on the MSDE Educator Portal Log-In and follow the prompts on the log-in screens and refer to the Instructions for Printing Digital Certificate. 
  3. If you need to reset your password, refer to the Instructions for Changing EIS Password.
