Applying for USOE Licensure

In order to obtain a license to teach in the state of Utah, graduates of teacher education programs must be recommended by their institution.  Please complete the necessary steps below and submit all paperwork to the Teacher Education Advisement Center, room Ed 230. 

1) Download and complete the Licensure Checklist for your teaching program:

  • Follow the instructions on the checklist for completing the licensure application process and keep a copy of all the paperwork you have submitted. Licensure Checklist 

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. When you receive this email it will contain information on the licensing procedure through USOE. Once you have completed the process you will immediately be able to print a copy of your license.  Please note: you will not be mailed a copy from USOE so make sure to save a copy on your computer or flash drive.  If you are unable to complete the on-line procedure after receiving the email contact Denise Wright. You will not hold a Utah license until you complete the online process
