Application for WMEAP

State Budget Licensure Changes

Important NoticeEducators who hold a Professional or Master Educator license that was supposed to expire on June 30, 2018, DO NOT NEED TO APPLY to renew their license with credits or a PDP.  The state budget has removed the expiration dates from these licenses, and we are working to have license lookup reflect that.

Please visit the Latest Licensing News blog for information on the state budget's impact on licensure. All available information has been posted to the Latest Licensing News blog. Please Note: the first post relating to the new license rules was written September 22nd.
 

In order to apply for and participate in the WMEAP process, interested candidates must:

  1. Meet eligibility requirements.
  2. Apply for the license using the Educator Licensing Online system by March 31st.
  3. Based on approved application, develop and complete 4 portfolio entries over 1-2 years during the WMEAP process.
  4. Submit portfolio for assessments.
  5. For details of the initial application process, please refer to the WMEAP Tip Sheet.

All timelines for WMEAP application are strictly enforced. Late, incomplete, or ineligible applications will be disqualified.

All applications for WMEAP are reviewed by a team of DPI-trained assessors for approval or denial. Follow the guidelines and examples in the relevant guidebook closely to help ensure a complete and strong application.
