Contact TEPDL

****** We have experienced an overwhelming volume of phone calls and email these past few weeks seeking assistance with ELO and licensing. We will continue to work with educators who had reached out for assistance or started an application online prior to June 30th to be able to assist with technical issues that prevented application completion.  Applications from these educators who made a good faith effort to apply will be considered as having been made timely. ******

Unless specifically directed by a TEPDL staff member, all supporting documentation for a license application should be uploaded by the candidate in the Educator Licensing Online (ELO) system.

For other correspondence, email us for the fastest response to your questions.
