Renew a License

Educators can prepare to renew a permit
or license by starting with the ABCs.

Applications. All educators use the Connected Ohio Records for Educators (CORE) system to renew their licenses, permits or certificates online. The online process provides a secure environment for educators to update their demographic data and pay licensure fees using a credit card or electronic check. Those who have not yet done so, must first create an OHID account to access the online application.

Background checks. Before starting a renewal application, educators should make sure their background checks are still valid.

Check requirements. Educators may view the requirements to renew, advance or transition a license, permit or certificate by selecting the link below.

Please note that educators who have multiple professional licenses expiring at different times may be eligible to align their licenses and save on licensure fees.

Application Instructions

  • Access your OH|ID account.
  • Click Educator Licensure and Records (CORE).
  • Complete the online application from your CORE Dashboard.
  • See the CORE User Manual for complete instructions.
