Certification/Licensure Information

Basic Application Information:

Links to license applications can be found in the upper right hand corner of this page. Links to state licensing bureaus can be found on this website.

Go to the state licensing agency website to obtain your license application.  Carefully read the directions and complete all necessary parts of the application. A complete file, including payment and all items the state requests, must be received by the certification office in order to send the application on to the licensing bureau. Incomplete applications will remain inactive until all materials are submitted by the applicant.

Submit your application only after your degree is posted on your transcripts.

All license applications require a personal declaration by your signature that you have completed the required coursework and appropriate student teaching, practicum, and/or internship. This Declaration of Completion Form must be sent to the Certification office with your application or faxed to us at 715-394-8371. 

If a degree is not required, an additional letter may be requested from your advisor or department showing that certification requirements have been satisfied.

Initial licenses for Minnesota require official transcripts. Request your transcripts from the Registrar's Office.

UW-Superior certification processing for educational licensure often takes less than one week once the applicant has submitted all necessary materials. Once your application is sent to the state licensing agency, you may check their website for the application status.

The application is mailed directly to the licensing agency. We do not send signed applications back to the applicant. Please keep copies of all applications and documents submitted.

Information regarding fingerprinting for Wisconsin applications is available at Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. The Certification Office also has fingerprint cards available. The Douglas County Sheriff's Office is a resource for fingerprinting. Electronic submission of fingerprints is available.

Information regarding fingerprinting for Minnesota applications is available at Minnesota Department of Education. The Certification Office also has fingerprint cards available. Electronic submission of fingerprints is available.

Wisconsin uses codes for age level and subjects. The listing may be found at Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. It is the responsibility of the applicant to use the appropriate codes.
