The 2021 re-certification fee may be paid by credit card or check. Credit card payment is preferred to expedite completion of your re-certification.   
Due to COVID, MSUE staff are working from home so check processing will be delayed.   Accordingly, we recommend that you pay the re-certification fee by credit card.

Your payment must be received within 10 days of your registration or your registration will be cancelled and you will not be considered re-certified.
 

  • Credit Card Payment:  Preferred method of payment to expedite completion of your re-certification.     Credit card payments must be processed on or before Feb. 12, 2021.    To ensure your credit card transaction is processed at the secure payment web site, please make sure to enter your personal information exactly as shown on the credit card and do not enter dashes or spaces in the credit card number.
  • Payment by check Checks (payable to MSU) must be mailed and postmarked by Jan. 19, 2021

Once you have completed the 3-step re-certification process, you will receive a confirmation email. Your 2021 re-certification card will be mailed to you by April 1, 2021.
