Online renewal - You can now renew your license online! Go to the Board of Educational Examiner's web site - and you'll see a link to do this. If you are renewing using coursework taken through the AEAs, use zeros for the course numbers. If you have an expired license and are not currently practicing in Iowa, do not renew online! It will automatically charge you a late fee!

Transcripts - The AEA automatically sends out a transcript at the completion of an activity. You can request an additional transcript (grade reports are not accepted by the BOEE) for classes taken through the AEA by calling the registrar at the AEA - Joyce Vander Wilt 1-800-572-5073 . If you registered for any classes directly through a college, request a transcript directly from the college.

Additional requirements - Complete the Mandatory Reporter training and obtain evidence of completion. (See the FAQ on this topic elsewhere in this catalog.)
