Educators must first register for an on-line licensure account and then create the appropriate request to add experience credit. Use the links belowt to find out more information on eligibility requirements for professional educator (teaching) experience and non-teaching experience (work-related) credit.
Professional Educator experience is normally completed in a K-12 school setting. Non-Teaching experience credit is completed in the private sector and must be related to the educator's teaching assignment. Non-Teaching experience must also be recommended and submitted by the local school system before DPI will grant the credit.
All experience requests must be approved by DPI. If employed, the Licensure Specialist for the school district can submit the request for the educator. Our school district normally begins paying on professional educator experience as soon as verification from the previous employer(s) is received by the Licensure Specialist. Non-Teaching experience is not paid on until DPI approves and grants the credit toward an educator's license.
There is a non-refundable $60 licensure processing fee for this request and requires payment by a VISA or MasterCard.
