To Whom It May Concern,

The purpose of this letter is to confirm that Danielle Smith is enrolled

in the teacher preparation program at Michigan State University. This
student is currently completing the second semester of the post-
graduate teaching internship year, the final requirement for
certification. The student is in good standing and on track to become
certified in the spring of 2017.

The College of Education must do a final review after grades become

available in early May to verify that all requirements for certification
have been met. Once successful completion of all program
requirements has been verified, the candidate will be recommended
to the Michigan Department of Education (MDE) for certification. At
that point, the candidate will be billed by the MDE. As soon as the
certification fee is paid, the certificate will be available to the
candidate online. We anticipate that all of our recommendations to
the MDE will be made in May (or early June) of 2017.

It is the candidates responsibility to apply for the Provisional

Certificate. Instructions for applying can be found on our website at Complete
applications are processed first. Questions about certification
requirements or the application process should be addressed to the
MSU Certification Office (; [517] 353 5146).
