Create/View/Update Your Profile in AELS
The Arkansas Educator Licensure System (AELS) Login Site allows licensed educators to update contact information, view license, and license activity, and start some of the recently added license applications online. Districts may search by Case ID, SSN, or by Name.
New Applicants for Educator Licensure
New applications must be completed through the AELS website. The first step in obtaining an AELS Profile is the completion of the Background Check Consent form.
This is also the first step in the background check process for licensed educators. The remaining steps to the background check process can be found here: Licensed Educator Background Checks
Licensed educators may also view their current license and access a "view screen" that provides their general licensure information by:
- Visiting the AELS Public Website and clicking "Educator Log In" in the top right-hand corner of the screen.
- Enter the account information, which includes, first and last name, a social security number, and date of birth
- Click "Log In"
