Preparing Educators as Leaders

Renewing a Kansas License

Renewals have become more complicated in recent years and requirements will vary depending on whether your license is current or expired, or whether you've been teaching or not.

Renewal forms, with several pages of instructions, may be downloaded from the Kansas State Department of Education web site under Educator Licensure, Applications. Renewals are usually sent directly to KSDE, not to KU, unless you are adding an endorsement at the same time. If you have specific renewal questions, please call KSDE at 785-291-3678. They are the authorities.

To renew a 2-year Initial License in Sumer 2012:
If you have been teaching and completed a "mentoring program" in Kansas, use the Form 22 to "Upgrade to the 5-year Professional License".
If you have not been teaching, use the Form 20 from the KSDE web site.

If you need proof of recent college credit or degree from KU, order an official hardcopy transcript (not the electronic version) from the KU Registrar.
