If you currently hold a 5 year license, the re-education requirement is 6 semester hours of college coursework. Those 6 credits do need to be completed during the 5 year time period that you hold the 5 year license. We ask that the courses you take to renew your 5 year license relate to education and/or what you are licensed to teach. If you have any questions about the credits needed to renew a license, call us at 701.328.9641.
