Illinois Teacher Certification Renewal

Illinois State Requirements

We're here to help Illinois teachers.

  
+Renew Your License | State Requirements

Per IL legislation, license renewal credits must be gained through an in-state institution. 

Choose Roosevelt University, an Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) pre-approved provider for your licensure and salary advancement needs.

Each licensee is required to meet the requirements under the License Renewal System before the end of his or her current 5-year renewal cycle.

Teachers: 120 clock-hours of professional development for licensees holding endorsements in teaching fields, or endorsements for school support personnel.

Administrators and Teacher Leaders: 100 clock hours of professional development, plus completion of one Administrators' Academy course each fiscal year of the 5-year renewal cycle.

NBPTS Master Teachers: 60 clock hours of professional development for a licensee holding a current National Board for Professional Teaching Standards master teacher designation.

+ADVANCE YOUR SALARY

We always recommend that you follow any pre-approval requirements in your district before you register for courses. Thousands of IL educators have been successful using our courses to advance on their district’s salary scale—and have typically been able to use any of our university/college partners.

If you need assistance with submission of a district approval form, course mapping or timelines, we’re happy to help. Our Advisory team is here to help you succeed!

+CREDIT CONVERSION

Per ISBE, college coursework must come from a regionally accredited University/College with an approved educator-degree program.

Roosevelt University, located in Chicago Illinois, is our Learners Edge Partner that meets this criteria.

One semester credit is equal to 15 hours of Professional Development (PD).
