Contacting the Licensing Office

Currently we are experiencing an extremely high volume of inquiries. Before contacting the Licensing Office, please read the following messages.

2014 Renewal Applications

2014 renewal applications are being processed in date order considering the date the Agency receives the application. Renewal applications were due to the Agency by June 30, 2014. Processing will take several weeks and is expected to continue through August 2014. Educators renewing their license(s) in 2014 should be ‘held harmless’ considering verification of licensure for employment. See this Memo for more details.

If your 2014 Renewal application has been submitted and you have received the orange card receipt in the mail, please refrain from calling the licensing office. Thank you for your patience.

Application Status - Processing Times

Processing of Transcript Review applications is currently taking 10 -12 weeks.

Processing of Initial License applications is currently taking 6-8 weeks.

Public access to educator license credentials

Attention educators using the Vermont Online Licensing System for Educators! If you have completed the Criminal Background Check (CRC) through a paper application process, please, do not repeat the CRC in the online licensing system. The CRC is completed one time for the Vermont Agency of Education.  Multiple submissions will create problems for licensing specialists. Thank you for your attention to this matter.


Currently we are experiencing an extremely high volume of inquiries. Before contacting the Licensing Office, please read the following messages.

  • If you have a change in your address, phone number, e-mail, etc., please go to the Vermont Online Licensing System for Educators to REGISTER (How to Register), update and maintain the information in your educator profile. There is no longer a need to send in a change of address form. Once you are registered, you can update your personal information and view or print a copy of your license which has your HQT status on it. 

Please only contact the Licensing Office after reviewing the website. Thank you for your cooperation and patience!
