Renewal Applications

If you have any questions about renewal of your license please to go Frequently Asked Questions

PLEASE NOTE: If your educators license expires in 2016 you can renew your license any time after January 1, 2016.

In order to make renewal of your Montana educator’s license more efficient, we are making the following changes to our renewal processes:

  1. Montana has gone to an online renewal process! All renewals must now be done online through our Montana State Educator Information System (MSEIS).

    Because we have a new licensure system you will probably need to set up a new account in the MSEIS system. Once you have set up your account, the application wizard for renewal will walk you through the simple process of completing your application. You will be required to enter in all of your professional development coursework and renewal units so make sure you have the information available before you start the process. You can also make your payment online.
    Step by Step Instructions for the Online Renewal Process

  2. You will no longer be required to send in official transcripts and renewal unit certificates at the time of renewal application!

    Renewal applications will now be randomly audited to verify accuracy. Therefore, even though you no longer need to submit your documents at the time your complete your renewal application, you will need to have them for your records. If your application is chosen for audit you will have 60 days to submit your documents for verification. Your license will NOT be issued if you are unable to provide the documents needed to verify your professional development activities.

    If you did not have your renewal activities pre-approved or cannot find your renewal unit courses in our system please contact our office at 406-444-3150.
