LVIS is in the building!!
Actually, LVIS is the Licensing Verification and Information System now used by the Indiana Department of Education. Following graduation, click the following link to get started: https://license.doe.in.gov/.
This profile will be in use for your entire career as an educator! We suggest reviewing the FAQ section in LVIS as it is very informative and helpful. Once your application is complete, including uploads of all required documentation, and a method of payment, then the Hanover College Licensing Advisor will see it in the Certification Queue. The Licensing Advisor confirms that the applicant meets all certification requirements as well having been awarded a degree from Hanover College. Once approved by the Licensing Advisor, your Initial Instructional Indiana teacher's license will be emailed to you as an attachment so that you may save it to your personal computer and be able to print out as needed. Licenses are no longer mailed out. If you have any questions on the process, or want to alert the Licensing Advisor that your application is ready for approval, please contact Mrs. Cheryl Torline at firstname.lastname@example.org and/or Dr. Dustin Bailey at email@example.com
The licensing process can be a little intimidating so we have created our own Step by Step "cheat sheet" to help!

or converted to a Five Year Professional License via IMAP (new coursework or added content area by CORE testing) or PGPs (at least 40 Professional Growth Points). https://www.doe.in.gov/licensing/convert-initial-practitioner-practitioner-license-and-add-content-area
