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. 

This site describes the UWSSLEC program. Check individual campuses for GPA  and portfolio requirements for admission to the practicum and for licensure expectations in on-campus programs.

Competencies for each license are on the DPI website. 

902 (with Stipulations) Requirements:

  • Hold or be eligible for a teaching license in an area other than school library media services
  • 21 credits of coursework plus supervised practicum experiences(3 to 6 credits).
