Apply for a License

The Tiered Licensure Structure Infographic gives a general overview of the requirements for each tier license level. Each tiered application provides additional information about licensure requirements.

Teacher and Related Services License Applications

Within the applications, please note guides to identify which tier matches your qualifications and experiences.  Please follow instructions carefully to ensure that your application is complete, which is required for processing. 

PELSB is not accepting application for Tier 1 and Tier 2 licenses for the 2019-20 school year until July 1, 2019.


Substitute and Administrator License Applications

You will need to create a Google account if you do not already have one to submit a substitute or administrator license application. Do not sign into the Online Licensing System if you currently hold a Minnesota educator license, a current or expired short-call substitute license, or a limited license and want to add a licensure field. Instead, complete the appropriate tiered license application.

Log-in problems: To clear a CEL error message, you will need to delete your browser history, cache, and cookies. After clearing your browser, please log back into your online licensing account. Please Note: You will need to log in with the email address originally associated with your online licensing account. The system will not recognize an email account unless it was the email address you originally used.
