Tips to Get You Through Relicensure
LVIS; Not the King of Rock & Roll
LVIS is the IDOE’s online L icensing V erification and I nformation S ystem.
It is the portal through which all of you relicensure activities must proceed.
https://license.doe.in.gov/login The link to set up your all-important LVIS profile.
Tip # 1; Create Your Profile Early.
Do not wait until time to renew to set up your profile through LVIS.
There have been “glitches” in migrating some data to LVIS and you will experience “technical difficulties” if your data is not correct.
Correct your profile before proceeding.
Remember your unique username & password.
You can check the status of your application.
Tip # 2; Have a debit or credit card handy.
There is a fee involved for adding to or renewing your license, and the IN DOE does charge you the fee associated with using a credit card.
LVIS accepts only Visa and Mastercard debit/credit cards. These are the only allowable forms of payment.
You must acquire a prepaid Visa or MC card if you do not carry one of these.
The current renewal cost is $35 plus the additional fee.
Tip # 3: Uploading Credits…
If you have difficulty uploading more than one entry or set of university credits, make one entry, log out, then go back in and try to add the next entry.
If the problem persists, contact IDOE via email through the “contact us” link on the LVIS home page.
IDOE staff will not field telephone calls directly nor will they entertain “in person” inquiries.
The entire process is designed to be “on-line.”
Tip #4: It’s not what you know, it’s who you know!
Ask your local association president and building principal who the authorized license renewal administrator is for your school district.
Notify that person immediately upon your submission of your renewal points so that he/she is aware that you are waiting for your renewal.
Tip #5: Wait….but just for a bit.
If your renewal has been submitted and you have not received your new license via email within 2 weeks, proceed as follows:
Click on the Application Status link on the MY LVIS page (your profile page).
Check with the local administrator who is authorized to renew your license to see if he/she has been notified.
Contact IDOE via email through the “contact us” link on the LVIS home page.
Tip #6: Your situation is unique.
If your situation is unique and you cannot readily find a way through LVIS to either input information or otherwise address your circumstances, contact IDOE immediately via email through the “contact us” link on the LVIS home page.
IDOE responses are provided in the order received.
Avoid contacting IDOE multiple times. It will not help.
Do not travel to the IDOE offices in Indianapolis. It will not help.
When all else fails?
Contact your local association president or UniServ office for assistance.
