Welcome to Montana Educator Licensing


Important & Exciting News for Montana Educators!


 

The Montana State Educator Information System (MSEIS) is getting ready to upgrade to a more efficient, user-friendly licensing system.  We have contracted with Randa Solution, a company that has recently rebuilt licensing systems for Colorado, Kentucky, and Tennessee.  We are excited to provide an enhanced system designed with the educator in mind, offering each educator a streamlined application process starting June 1, 2022.  

In preparation for this upgraded system, we need to let you know a few key dates about new applications and renewals

There are 2 options for Renewals during the transition phase:

  1. Starting January 1, 2022 you can mail a paper application and payment to:
    • Montana Office of Public Instruction
      Attn. Educator Licensure
      PO Box 202501
      Helena, MT 59620
  2. Starting June 1, 2022 you can submit your online renewal application.
    • Any renewal units or college/university credits you have entered into the Professional Development section in MSEIS will be transferred to the new system as part of your State educator record. Be sure to keep your original renewal unit certificates in case your renewal application is audited when you apply for your license renewal.

 

There are 2 options for Fall 2021 Montana College and University Graduates during the transition phase:

  1. Starting January 1, 2022 you can submit a paper application for initial licensure.
    • The Montana college or university representative will continue to be able to complete the University Recommendation through MSEIS.
  2. Starting June 1, 2022 you can submit your online application.
