State License/ Certification Disclosure Statement

Educator licensing in the State of Wisconsin is processed by the Department of Public Instruction (DPI), using the Educator Licensing Online (ELO) system. Applications for licensure are found on DPI’s website. ELO processes applications for the following license types:

Graduates of Marquette’s teacher preparation programs are endorsed for a provisional educator license, tier-II level.

For current students:

Before you begin your license application, we are required to submit your license endorsement information to DPI. This will be completed once you finish all requirements in your program.

For alumni:

If you completed your Wisconsin preparation program before 9/1/2004, please follow the directions available via DPI’s website. If you completed your program between 9/1/2004 and 12/31/2013, please email Kirsten Lathrop, Director of Licensure and Field Placement, with your current legal name, previous name, date of birth and graduation month to request your information be submitted to DPI.

Helpful links:

There is frequently at least a “license with stipulations option” in other states for Wisconsin program completers who have a current, valid Wisconsin teaching license. This option includes teachers, administrators, speech pathologists, and school counselors. For this reason, our graduates are strongly encouraged to apply for their Wisconsin license prior to applying in another state.
