Licensure is becoming more complex every day and we are here to help you! The Licensure Officer at KU, Alisa Branham, is the central information source for all licensure questions. Please read the information here, then feel free to contact Alisa by email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need further assistance.
Licensure in other states
KU alumni who need to have "verification" or "recommendation" forms completed for licensure in other states should mail paper copies directly to: Licensure, KU School of Education, 1122 West Campus Rd., 211 JRP, Lawrence, KS 66045. Please allow two weeks for processing, three weeks during peak periods. It's very helpful if you'll attach a note listing your KUID number, email address, any prior names, and when you completed your program at KU so we can find your records. Faxes or electronic files are not accepted.
At this time, KU does not offer any programs for alternative licensure/restricted license. You can find more information on alternative licensure programs by contacting the universities listed at the KSDE web site www.ksde.org under Educator Licensure, Restricted Teaching License/Alternative Pathway.
