Teacher Licensure

Applying for Teacher Licensure

Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) and Board of Teaching (BOT) have been combined and have been renamed Professional Educator Licensing and Standards Board (PELSB). 

St. Cloud State University urges you to apply for Teacher Licensure as soon as you complete the program and additional requirements. Standards for teaching evolve and change therefore you may qualify for a Minnesota Teaching License today, but if you wait to apply you may not fulfill the current required standards. This could result in additional coursework, testing, and/or other requirements.

We are currently updating our licensure instructions. Please visit https://mn.gov/pelsb/ for Teacher Licensure Application & requirements.
