Believe You Already Met a Statutory Stipulation?
If you believe that you have already completed college or university coursework that covers any of your statutory stipulations, then please make a copy of the stipulation letter we sent to you when we first issued your license, and send it to the college or university where you completed the course(s). Ask that an official from the college/university (preferably the Certification Officer or the Dean of the School of Education) review Wisconsin’s requirements (as noted on your statutory stipulation letter), review the specific course content for the course or courses that you believe meets Wisconsin's requirements, and have that person write a letter, on college or university letterhead, and bearing their signature, attesting that a specific course(s) satisfies all of the requirements for a particular stipulation. Please do not simply provide us with a transcript or a course catalog description--we must have an official who is in a position to meaningfully exercise their professional knowledge and judgment about your coursework make that determination. If the course does not appear on a transcript that you have already previously supplied to the DPI, please also provide us with a transcript or grade report verifying that you have taken that course(s).
Educators may provide evidence of meeting statutory stipulations when applying to renew or advance their license. Educators may also provide the required documentation by scanning the documentation, attaching it to an email, and sending it to us at the licensing online help desk link below.
