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 plus user guides and other resources are available on the LicensE Customer Information page. Anyone applying for an initial license for any of the credentials listed can apply at license.wi.gov.
LicensE is for new, initial applications only. To renew your license, click HERE.
We are introducing a new LicensE Application Status Lookup tool. This tool will make it easier for employers to track the application status of current and future employees, and it will help academic advisors support students during the license application process. To access the Application Status Lookup tool, individuals will need an applicant's 10-digit PAR number. An applicant may provide the number to anyone who could support their application. For more information, see our press release.
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).
