ELO First-time Application Tips for an Educator Substitute License via non-WI License or Program

****** 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. ******

Directions for a first-time applicant who is either licensed in another state or completed a program in another state, has no previous license in Wisconsin, and is requesting a 5 year license as a substitute.

IF there is some type of misconduct that needs to be reported, prepare and attach a written explanation of what happenedYou must also provide complete electronic (scanned) copies of documents associated with the matter that can corroborate / illuminate your explanation of the incident. These may include the criminal complaint, judgment of conviction, police reports, disciplinary letters/findings, correspondence, etc., as applicable.  (Note: Court history information printed from the CCAP web site is NOT sufficient.)

  • Scan one of the following two required documents into a PDF file that is less than 2 MB in size and save the file so that it is readily available to upload into ELO during the application process:
    1. a copy of a valid regular educator license for teaching, administration or pupil services issued by another state
    2. ​a completed PI-1612 Institutional Endorsement and Assurances form 
  • Have your credit card ready.  If you do not already have a credit card, you should purchase a pre-paid credit card at a convenience store.
