​​​​​​ ​​​​Now Live: Easier Online License Applications!

LicensE, our new, online, self-guided occupational license application platform is now live! The list of licenses available via LicensE is available HERE. Anyone applying for an initial license for any of the credentials listed can apply at license.wi.gov.​

Who can use LicensE? Applicants for initial health care licenses are our primary LicensE users, but we know many other organizations and institutions will need to submit documents through the platform. Anyone who is not an applicant or a DSPS employee is considered a LicensE third-party user. Third-parties include educational institutions, employers, testing centers, and any other individual or entity who needs to supply documentation on behalf of an applicant. Please see our Additional​ Resources for third-party user guides, demo videos, and more.

LicensE is for new, initial applications only. To renew your license, click HEREYou should not use LicensE to renew your license at this time. If you already have a pending application, you should not apply again in LicensE. Note that applicants who apply multiple times will be charged for each ​application.
