Fees are charged for the completion of eligibility evaluations for out-of-state and out-of-country graduates and for the processing of each individual license or permit issued by the department. Multiple actions taken on one license generally require only one fee.

For example, an educator may apply to renew an instructional license and at the same time add a new content area to that license with only one (1) fee. But, if an Educator applies to renew two (2) separate licenses (for instance, a Rules 46-47 All Schools instructional license and a Rules 46-47 Administrative and Supervision license) each license will require a separate application and fee.

  • $35 for each Educator License or Permit
  • $35 for an Evaluation (Out-of-State and Out-of-Country Graduates)
  • $15 for a Substitute Permit

Educators that submit multiple applications at the same time may pay by Visa or MasterCard through LVIS. All transactions will include a processing fee.

All fees are non-refundable.


Payment/Costs involved for 1st time licensure

This includes all Out-of-State Applicants and all Non-US Graduate/Out-of-Country Applicants.

When you apply for an original license there are 2 fees associated with the licensure: an Evaluation Fee and a License Application Fee. The initial payment will be used for the evaluation of your credentials. This fee is $35.00 (plus handling and transaction fees). After the evaluation is completed, a second payment of $35.00 (plus handling and transaction fees) will be due to issue the license. The Office of Educator Licensing will notify you when this payment is due.
