The DuPage Regional Office of Education Licensure Team is happy to assist retired, current, and prospective educators in any way that we can with your licensure needs. We can answer your questions on initial licensure, renewal, professional development requirements, and all other licensure topics. We also act as your link to ISBE (Illinois State Board of Education). In order to better serve you, we have facilitated tabs below with resource links in each category to more efficiently meet your needs. 

If at any time, you cannot find the information you need, have any questions, or just want to talk to a licensure specialist, contact us through or call 630.407.5800. If possible, we ask that you have your IEIN (Illinois Educator Identification Number) ready when you call. 

Our Licensure Department also conducts fingerprint-based background checks for DuPage County substitute teachers, contractors, and new employees/student teachers/volunteers for select school districts. Fingerprinting is by appointment only. For more information, please see our Fingerprint/Background check section of this site.
