Important Information About Printing Your License

In an effort to maintain a safe, secure, and efficient licensure process, the Office of Educator Licensure will no longer print a paper copy of a license. Upon issuance, an email containing a link to the license will be sent for printing of the license. Educators may print their license, at any time, using the following link https://aels.ade.arkansas.gov/AELS/Account/TeacherLogin.aspx and then choosing download and print my current license.
