Individuals who wish to renew their current or expired licenses (or certificates) do this through the Ohio Department of Education (ODE) Office of Certification and Licensure. While renewing current or expired certificates is a State process, one of the goals of the Beeghly College of Education is to provide our graduates and teachers in our community with the best information we have on renewal.
To this end, we are providing some web site links we believe might be helpful.
The following link will take you to the Ohio Department of Education Office of Certification and Licensure web site. There you can find up-to-date, authoritative information directly from ODE.
It may be that even after reviewing the information provided on the site, you still have questions. The following link is provided so that you can contact ODE with your specific concerns or questions. Contact ODE
If neither of these approaches prove fruitful, perhaps we can assist in answering questions or directing you to a more specific person who can. Please email Crystal Hawthorne, Beeghly College of Education Licensure Coordinator, at cmhawthorne AT ysu DOT edu with your questions.
