902 Library Media Specialist License (With Stipulations)
Becoming a school library media specialist in Wisconsin is a two-stage process. UWSSLEC will prepare you for both stages. The license with stipulations qualifies you as a school librarian for five years.
You must complete the full, renewable 902 license during your first five years with the 902 with Stipulations.
Courses may be as a graduate student in the UWSSLEC distance program, or on campus at UW Eau Claire, Superior, or Whitewater campuses, either as an undergraduate minor or as a special student.
