Becoming a Utah Educator


This page has all the information needed to apply for a Utah Educator License.  If you are new to education, please review the Pathways section to learn how to become a licensed educator.  If you are already a licensed educator in another state or country, please go to the Apply section and complete the License Equivalency Review (LER) application process.  All educators will need to complete a Background Check.
