Your Illinois educator license must be renewed and registered by August 31, 2024. You may log into your ELIS (Educator Licensure Information System) account to renew your license beginning April 1, 2024.

ELIS (Educator Licensure Information System)
The Illinois State Board of Education created a web based educator credential system called ELIS.  All records are kept in ELIS and after you create your account you apply, register, renew and pay through this system as well as copy your credential page for the hardcopy of your credentials.  The ELIS website has been optimized and works best with Firefox 18.0 or above. You can download the latest version of these recommended browsers by clicking on the following icon.

Instructions for Getting Back into your ELIS Account if you have Forgotten the Process



For faster handling your official transcripts should be sent or brought to our Regional Office of Education in a sealed, unopened school envelope instead of being sent to the Illinois State Board of Education.  If the college or university will email official transcripts, they can be emailed directly to from the school.
