Step 1: Create a Michigan Education Information System (MEIS) account
Visit https://cepi.state.mi.us/MEISPublic/ and follow the links on the screen to create a MEIS account. MEIS will send a user ID, password, and account number to the e-mail address you provided when you followed the links to create an account.
Step 2: Register with MOECS
Once you have established a MEIS ID, please visit http://www.michigan.gov/moecs, and on the login screen, sign in with your MEIS user ID and password and follow the steps to self-register with MOECS. On the registration page, you will be asked to provide the MEIS account number that was sent to you via e-mail in Step 1.
Step 3: Apply for your new certificate in MOECS
Once you have signed in with MOECS successfully, you will first be asked to complete demographic information. Once you save it, you will see links on the left navigation panel. Choose the link that pertains to your new certificate and follow the steps to apply for your new certificate. In this application process, be sure to identify Oakland University as your institution.
Step 4: Await review and approval
After you have applied for your new certificate, your application will be submitted to OU. Applications will be reviewed and processed within 8 weeks from the date they are submitted to MOECS.
Step 5: Pay MDE’s fee online
Once your application in MOECS has been approved, you will receive an e-mail with a link for you to pay MDE’s fee online using a credit/debit card. If you do not receive the e-mail, you can still pay the fee by logging into MOECS using your user ID and password.
Step 6: Await your new certificate
Once you pay the fee, the Office of Professional Preparation Services (OPPS) at MDE will approve your new certificate.
