Processing Times, Late Fees, and Extensions

Due to the large number of applications we have received, applications are taking 3-4 weeks to process. You must have a valid license in order to serve as an educator in Iowa.

You may need to apply for an extension if your license is expiring soon.

Late fees will be assessed for applications received after a license has expired.

Background Checks for Licensure

Fingerprint background checks are required for all new applicants. If you received a license or authorization during the COVID-19 emergency proclamation, you must submit fingerprint cards to our agency as soon as possible. Most police stations have resumed this service. All individuals wishing to be printed at the BoEE office must first make an appointment by calling our main number (515-281-3245). No walk-ins will be permitted.
