Continuing Licensure Renewal

Completed paper applications need to be mailed or hand delivered to our office, along with the appropriate Superintendent’s Recommendation Form(s) and processing fee.

License holders who will be renewing their Level 2 or 3 license(s) at the same level may utilize the Same Level Licensure Renewal system found online at:

When using this option, a designated administrator (for the school or district) needs to complete an online Administrative Review verifying that the licensee is meeting competencies and is recommended for licensure renewal. It is the licensee’s responsibility to notify their Administrator that they will be utilizing this option.

If a NM license is expired and NM FBI check is more than 24 months old, a new background check will need to be completed with the ORI # # NM920140Z & Reason Code: TEACHER LICENSURE.

Superintendent’s Recommendation Forms should not be mailed to our office when starting the renewal process online.

**Level One Teaching Licenses & Pre Level One Alternative Licenses are NOT renewable!**

When renewing multiple licenses with the same application, only one fee (the highest of applicable fee) is required.
