Will your educator license expire in 2018?

11/3/2017

The Ohio Department of Education’s online application system is now open for renewal of educator licenses that are due to expire on June 30, 2018. If you have met your requirements for renewal, you can get ahead by submitting your application. Even if you are not ready to apply, we suggest that you review this article for tips on making the process go smoothly. You will even find information on applying for a new credential. Avoid the rush and apply early!  

DO YOU HAVE A SAFE ACCOUNT?

Because the entire licensure application process is online, you will need a secure SAFE account to create a license application request. If you previously set up a SAFE account but do not remember the password, go to the SAFE portal and use the “forgot user name or password” link located next to the sign in boxes. Please do not create a second SAFE account, even if you changed your name since first establishing your account.  If you are sure you do not have a SAFE account, here’s how to set yours up: 

After creating your SAFE account and receiving confirmation of its set-up via email, it’s quick and easy to submit and pay for your licensure request online. 

WILL YOUR BACKGROUND CHECKS EXPIRE THIS YEAR?

DO YOU KNOW ALL THE REQUIREMENTS FOR RENEWING, ADVANCING OR TRANSITIONING YOUR LICENSE?  

The Renew a License webpage has links to information about these topics: 

DO YOU HAVE YOUR COURSE WORK REQUIREMENTS COMPLETED? 

Some applicants must complete course work to renew their licenses. Others may fulfill education requirements through continuing education, other equivalent activities or course work. Please see the Renew a License webpage for links to requirements for your specific credential.

WHAT IF YOU WANT TO ADD A NEW LICENSE?  

LICENSE FEES WAIVED FOR VETERANS AND THOSE IN THE MILITARY

The fees for any initial Ohio educator license, permit or certificate – or for a renewal – will be waived for candidates who are veterans or current service members of all branches of the United States Armed Forces, including the National Guard or Reserves. Spouses of active duty services members also may receive a license free of charge. Those seeking the fee waiver will need to upload a scanned copy of a military service verification document. Learn more about this and other programs to support military families here

ARE YOU READY TO APPLY?

You will see steps for initiating a license request within the ODE.CORE system on the How to Renew webpage (for renewals, and adding fields and endorsements); and on the How to Apply page (for a new credential).
