EI certificates, including renewals, have issue/expiration dates based on the date the applicant pays for the application online. The Indiana Department of Education has no authority to issue renewals retroactive to the expiration of the prior certificate. An EI certificate is valid for two years.

The cost of an EI certificate, either original or renewal, is $35. All license fees include and additional $1 handling fee + 2% of total transaction fee for online processing. Payment must be made online by Visa or MasterCard debit/credit card.
