Time Constraints
  • Although you will graduate December 21, you will student teach until either January 17 or 24th.
  • You will be required to have your Gate III portfolio in to be given a final grade before the Holidays. Once the grade is given, the Registrar’s office will run their final audit on your student record to ensure your degree can be conferred. If all criteria are met, they will grant you your degree. When degrees are conferred, I will be sending down the required list to DPI indicating your certifications and applicable licensure endorsements.

After January 15th, (or so we think), you will be able to log into the ELO and start your application. According to sources at DPI, you will be able to complete the first two pages of the application and save it until your degree is conferred. When DPI has accepted our list of students, you will be contacted by our office via your UWEC email.

At that time, complete the application for your WI License. If you have ever even thought about getting your WI license, APPLY! DO NOT WAIT!! If you have any charges etc., that will show up on your background check (i.e. court case(s)) and have documentation regarding a case, you will have the opportunity to upload those documents with an explanation as an attachment to your license application.

Time Constraints (Cont’d)

If you are an MCEA – Elem Ed student, a SPED – Special Ed student, or have a Special Ed minor, and do not apply for your license before January 31, 2014, you will be required to participate in and pass the WI Foundations of Reading Exam before you will be allowed to apply for a license.

This is the last semester the WI Foundations of Reading Exam will not be mandatory, so GET YOUR LICENSE! If you do not apply for your license and decide in 6 months you want it, you will be required to participate and pass the exam. When DPI has accepted your application, you will be able to print out your License/Certificate immediately. PRINT IT and save a copy for yourself, as well as saving an electronic copy!!
