Expired Lateral Entry Licenses

The State Board of Education passed a policy that allows individuals who did not complete the requirements of the lateral entry license to obtain another lateral entry license under certain conditions. The policy reads as follows:

“Individuals who do not fulfill the requirements of their lateral entry license within the three years they are initially given may be issued another lateral entry license provided:

  • they have passed the required licensure exam(s) for the specialty area in which the license will be issued and
  • at least six years have elapsed since the prior lateral entry license was issued.”

The State Board of Education policy can be found at  LICN-001, Section 1.70 (the last paragraph). No new lateral entry licenses will be issued after June 30, 2019.
