Graduates of Beloit College’s teacher preparation programs are endorsed for a provisional license/initial educator license, tier-II level.

For current students

Before you begin your license application, we are required to submit your license endorsement information to DPI. This will be completed once you finish all requirements in your program.

For alumni

If you completed your Wisconsin preparation program before 9/1/2004, please follow the directions available via DPI’s website. If you completed your program between 9/1/2004 and 12/31/2013, please email, with your current legal name, previous name, date of birth and graduation month to request your information be submitted to DPI.

Helpful links

There is frequently at least a “license with stipulations option” in other states for Wisconsin program completers who have a current, valid Wisconsin teaching license. This option includes teachers, administrators, speech pathologists, and school counselors. For this reason, our graduates are strongly encouraged to apply for their Wisconsin license prior to applying in another state.
