Revision of an Idaho Certificate/Credential

Application Guidelines

If new certificates and endorsements need to be added to an existing Idaho credential, revisions can be made at any time during the five (5)-year period of the credential. A completed application or written request specifying the revision to be made must be accompanied by a $25 revision fee. Official transcripts supporting the revision must also be sent, if not already on file. Revisions related to Administrator, Pupil Personnel Services, and Exceptional Child Certificates require Institutional Recommendations, verification of experience, and verification of competencies as required.

If revisions or additions to an Idaho credential are requested at the time the credential is being renewed, the revisions or additions can be made at no cost, provided the applicant meets current standards.

Notice: Regarding Adding Endorsements to Idaho Certificates. The Idaho State Department of Education no longer conducts transcript evaluations to determine endorsement eligibility.
