Welcome to the Utah State Board of Education's Online License Renewal System

New State Administrative Rule (R277-501-6) requires a background check and clearance for all license renewals and upgrades. If you have not completed the fingerprint background check during the school year in which you wish to renew your license, click here. If you have not received an email stating your fingerprints have cleared (usually 15 to 20 days after electronic scan), do not proceed to request license renewal.

This online license renewal system is available to current Level 2 and Level 3 Utah Professional Educator License holders. For information on other license applications or renewals, please go to www.schools.utah.gov/cert, or call Educator Quality and Licensing, Utah State Board of Education at 801-538-7740.
