Online Licensure Application System (OLAS)

​The Department of Safety and Professional Services' Online Licensure Application System (OLAS) allows applicants for licensure to apply online in order to reduce processing time.

Online applications are available for the following licenses: Business Professions, Health Professions, Boxing/MMA. 


Please note that effective July 1, 2019, license and credential fees will be reduced for many occupations. The new fees will take effect July 1—beginning with initial license applications received in the Department and/or postmarked on or after July 1. The fees are set through the next fiscal biennium, or July 1, 2021. View the Frequently Asked Questions to see if the fee for your profession has been reduced or maintained at the current level. (Listed in Appendix C).​



OLAS is not Meant to Renew or Reinstate a Credential Previously Held in Wisconsin. (This Does not Apply to Boxing/MMA Professions.)

If you need to renew a credential expired less than 5 years ago, please log in to the Online License Renewal. Application forms can be found by visiting the profession-specific page via the A-Z Professions List.


Nursing Applicants: Only new Nursing Graduates Applying by Examination Whose Schools Participate in the OLAS are Eligibile to Apply Online

All other applicants must print off, complete, and mail in application materials found on each profession-specific page via the A-Z Professions List.
