Apply for a New License

Principals, teachers (including substitutes), treasurers, coaches, educational aides and pupil services personnel are among those who need educator licenses. To obtain a new license, these individuals will use an application for the credential through the Ohio Department of Education's Connected Ohio Records for Educators system (CORE).

An educator who already is licensed to teach particular grades, (ex. prekindergarten through grade 3) who has recently earned the qualifications for another teaching license (ex. Middle Childhood) also should use the new application for the new license. Learn how to renew an existing license here.
