If you are a PSU program completer applying for an Added (Teaching) Endorsement, School Specialist License, or School Leadership License and are within six months of the expiration date of your current Kansas license, you are eligible to simultaneously renew your license while adding the new endorsement or license and only a single application fee is required if the two applications are submitted together. To apply for an Added teaching endorsement, Initial School Specialist, or Initial School Leadership and simultaneously renew your license, you will need to complete a "paper" FORM 1 Application for Kansas INITIAL LICENSE OR ADDED ENDORSEMENTS from Kansas Institutions ONLY. The "paper" application however is unavailable on the KSDE web site.
Therefore you must contact PSU Teacher Licensing, to request the "paper" FORM 1 application when you are prepared to apply for an Added teaching endorsement, Initial School Specialist, or Initial School Leadership and simultaneously renew your current license. While renewal applications are available on the KSDE web site at
you may request the FORM 3a Application for Kansas RENEWAL OF A PROFESSIONAL LICENSE at the time you request the "paper" FORM 1 application and it will be provided to you.
When your request for a "paper" FORM 1 application is received, you will be provided detailed instructions for completing the application process and the application will be attached to an e-mail together with the renewal application if you request it.
Please note when you are applying for any endorsement/license that your application cannot be processed without your passing PRAXIS II test score or School Leadership Series assessment score. If Pittsburg State did not electronically receive your score from the Educational Testing Service, you will be responsible for providing necessary documentation.
