Submit a completed approval request packet to UWSP, either via email or regular mail. We are not able to process requests unless final course grades are posted, packets are complete and all requested information is filled in accurately and completely.
If using email, we suggest whiting out any SS# listed on documentation you are submitting as it can be stolen as it is being sent.
Also, please list "Add-on Request" or the license being requested in the subject line, or include a description in the email. Simply sending a blank email with an attachment may cause it to be filtered out as junk.
If you are seeking the Reading Specialist license and are not already certified with another administrative lifetime license, a passing score on the Foundations of Reading Test is required.
Once we have received approval from the appropriate person on campus, we will upload your approval to DPI's website. You will receive an email from Maggie Beeber, Teacher Certification Officer, once your approval has been uploaded. You will not be able to apply online earlier than this.

that will assist you in preparing for the online application process, as well as directions in case you get stuck on their website. We recommend reading through these directions immediately as there are documents you may need to prepare in advance.
If you have any feedback on these directions, please let us know as we will continue to work to improve upon them.
DPI will contact you using the email you provide to them with questions, concerns or to inform you that your license has been processed. Once you receive this email, you are invited to go to DPI's website to print out your new license. DPI is expecting the process, once you have completed your online application and made a payment, to take up to 10 days. It may take longer if anything is missing or if your Conduct and Competency Check takes longer.
