Advancing, Extending, or Renewing a License
Below is a list of the most frequently asked questions related to advancing, extending, or renewing a license. Additional information, including how to advance, extend, or renew a license, can be found on our Advancing, Extending, or Renewing a License page.
May I extend my Initial license?
An Initial license may be extended one time only for an additional 5 years of employment if the educator has not yet satisfied the requirements necessary to advance to the Professional level license. An application for the Initial-Extension license must be submitted, along with a school or district employment letter verifying five years of employment under your license and a signed plan statement.
May I extend or re-apply for a Provisional license that has expired?
No. Educators are not able to extend or re-apply for the same Academic Provisional license.
