2020 MSU Extension Master Gardener Recertification

Thank you for re-certifying as a Michigan State University Extension Master Gardener! This is the final step in the 3-step re-certification process. (If you have not completed steps 1 and 2 in the VMS, please return to the VMS once you have completed this current step of making your re-certification payment.)

We value your service and thank you for sharing your valuable time and expertise with your community. Your re-certification fee will be reinvested in the Michigan Master Gardener Program to keep it strong and viable throughout the state. 

2019 and 2020 Re-certification timeline:   Dec. 1, 2019 - Dec. 31, 2019

Fee:  $50 ($30 for 2019 and $20 for 2020).
                                           
The re-certification fee may be paid by credit card or check. Credit card payment is preferred to expedite completion of your re-certification.                                    

  • Credfit Card Payment:  Credit card payments must be processed on or before Dec. 31, 2019. To ensure your 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. 
  • Check Payment: Checks (payable to MSU) must be mailed and postmarked by Dec. 19, 2019.  

If payment is not received within 10 days of your registration, your registration will be cancelled and you will not be considered re-certified. 

All payments must be received no later than Dec. 31, 2019 to ensure your re-certification in the MSU Extension Master Gardener Program.

Once you have completed the 3-step re-certification process, you will receive a confirmation email with further instructions about the opportunity to become a member of the Michigan Master Gardener Association (MMGA) as well as accessing the Volunteer Management System (VMS) to enter your completed hours (after Feb. 8, 2020).
