Fees are charged for the completion of eligibility evaluations for out-of-state graduates, non-US graduates, and alternative path applicants. Fees are also required 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, Non-US Graduates, and Alternative Certification Paths)
- $15 for a Substitute Permit
Educators that submit multiple applications at the same time may pay by Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card through LVIS. All transactions will include a processing fee.
Payment/Costs involved for 1st time licensure
This includes all Out-of-State Applicants, Non-US Graduates and Alternative Path Applicants.
When you apply for an original license there are two 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 (plus a processing fee). After the evaluation is completed, a second payment of $35 (plus a processing fee) will be due to issue the license. An automated email will notify you when this payment is due.
If a transaction also involves the issuance of a reciprocal permit, an additional fee may be required.
All fees are non-refundable.
