Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Education Program

SVSU offers elementary and secondary teacher education programs for individuals who already have a bachelor's degree or higher and want to obtain their license to teach in Michigan. Admission to these programs is coordinated through the Office of Admissions & Certification in the College of Education.

If you are considering a career in teaching, we invite you to attend a Teacher Certification Seminar. These seminars are designed to explain State of Michigan certification requirements for teachers, explore those highest demand positions within education, and provide you with the background information that you will need in order to get started.

Upcoming Seminar Dates:

Sessions are held on SVSU's main campus in Saginaw (campus map):

  • Tuesday, August 16, 5:30 - 6:30 p.m., Gilbertson Hall, GA 114

We ask that you RSVP at to confirm your attendance.  Please be sure to include the date you plan to attend and the name of the institution where you completed your highest degree in the email. 

Once you have attended a seminar, your next step is to meet with a certification adviser for an individualized appointment. During the appointment, the adviser will evaluate your transcripts and outline a planned program. You will leave the office knowing exactly what classes you will take, the time-frame for completing your program, and how to get started.
