To enroll in UWSSLEC: As of fall 2018, you will have two options for earning the 1902 license:
If you have the necessary online access and feel a distance program will work for you, follow these steps.
1. Select a Home Campus (see Campus tab): Are you pursuing a graduate degree or simply licensure? Consider each institution's degree programs, their particular strengths, portfolio expectations and practicum requirements and choose your best fit - you can change your Home Campus during the first two courses.
2. Check the technology requirements for the program.
3. Complete the UWSSLEC Electronic Application (Press the button).

4. Determine your status:
5. Complete the appropriate application for your home campus:
a. Have teaching license and want graduate degree: Apply to a graduate degree program. If you seek both the license and a degree, apply as a candidate for degree through the online application process and choose the appropriate campus and degree. Note: If you select UW-Madison you must be enrolled in their graduate degree program specifically and should contact them before seeking admission to UWSSLEC.
b. Have teaching license but want with licensure only: Apply for Admission as a Special Student or non-candidate for degree at your home campus. Use the online application process to register. UW Whitewater calls this a Non-Candidate for Degree Student (under the graduate application process) and UW Oshkosh calls this a Non-Degree Special Student. This allows you to take courses at the undergraduate level. These can't later become graduate courses, so make sure you don't want to work on a degree from the start.
c. Have no teaching license but at least a bachelor's degree - Apply for Admission as a Special Student at your home campus. Use the online application process to register as a special student. UW Whitewater calls this a Special Student Full Credentials and UW Oshkosh calls this a Non-Degree Special Student. If you want to also work on a graduate degree, it is recommended that you take the education courses at the undergraduate level and apply as a graduate candidate when you start the library courses.
6. You may now register for courses!

UWSSLEC students pay Wisconsin resident graduate tuition plus a $150 distance fee for each course to support development and coordination across campuses. Note: Posted fee rates combine tuition and segregated fees. UWSSLEC students pay only tuition, not the segregated fee, which is usually higher than the UWSSLEC distance fee.
