The College of Education and Professional Studies' goal is to assist you in obtaining your initial Wisconsin teacher's license. The licensure information provided here lists the requirements for an initial teacher's license that the State of Wisconsin and UW-Whitewater have established for your program. In addition to these requirements, you must also satisfy UW-Whitewater requirements for proficiency and general studies, academic majors, minors, and other degree requirements if you do not possess a baccalaureate degree. These requirements are published in the UW-Whitewater Undergraduate Catalog.
Students seeking initial licensure must also complete requirements for Admission to Professional Education. (Students seeking licensure as a School Business Manager, School Psychologist, Speech and Language Pathologist, or in Counselor Education must follow separate admission policies).
