This license is an add-on to any Wisconsin teaching license. The table below presents a typical rotation for those individuals seeking the license - note that some courses are offered through UW-Whitewater and some through UW-Stevens Point. Courses do not need to be taken in this exact order. However, some courses are offered only once a year. Please refer to the official course schedule for the most up-to-date schedule.

Wisconsin Program Coordinator License in Gifted and Talented (64-014)

This license is under the Administration category in PI 34 and is intended for those who are interested in, for example, coordinating gifted programming and services at a district level. The program leading to this license includes the same three core courses as for the gifted teacher license, but also requires a program coordinator course with embedded practicum. NOTE: pupil services personnel (school counselors, school psychologists, and school social workers) are eligible for the gifted program coordinator license, but not the gifted teacher license. Teachers and administrators may apply for both licenses if they so choose. For more information, contact the UWW program coordinators.
