Name or Address Change

Changing your name or address in the Wisconsin Web Access Management System (WAMS) does not change your name or address in our licensing database.

Name Change

If your name has changed since your license was issued, you have the following options:

  1. Wait until your next license application or renewal to update your name. You can enter your new name and previous name(s) on the "Entity Name" and "Personal Details" page of your next license application.
  2. Submit a request for a name change in ELO. There is a $45 fee for this service because a new background check must be conducted on the new name.

Address Change

In the event of an address change since your license was issued, you have the following options:

  1. Wait until your next license application or renewal to submit your current address, or
  2. Contact Educator Licensing to provide DPI your current address before your next application or renewal. 

Note:

The DPI no longer prints and mails paper license certificates.  You can print your license yourself using the Educator Licensing Online (ELO) system.
