- Official transcripts are required if the Bachelors degree was obtained at an institution other than Weber State University. Please contact the institution where you earned your degree to have the official transcripts forwarded for licensing purposes.
Once all paperwork and transcripts with posted degrees are received, the teacher education licensure specialist will send an email to your WSU student email account advising you about completing the licensure process.
Graduates who do not already hold a Utah teaching license will need to complete the on-line licensing procedure through the Utah State Office of Education within 30 days of being notified by WSU. From the website, select the University Recommendations tab to apply and pay ($60) for your license. Be sure to update your address and email if necessary. Once finished, you will immediately be able to print a copy of your license and be sure to save a copy on your computer or flash drive. Please note, you will not be mailed a copy from the State Office of Education. If you are unable to complete the on-line procedure, contact the WSU teacher education licensure specialist. You will not hold a Utah license until you complete the online process!
