Office Hours: The office’s hours will remain 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, but the office will be minimally staffed as most employees will conduct business from home. Consultants may be reached via phone or email during regular business hours. See our Contact Us page for more details. In-person visits to consultants are by appointment only.
Fingerprinting Services: The Iowa Board of Educational Examiners will remain open, however we have temporarily suspended all on-site fingerprinting services. We will continue to mail fingerprint packets upon request. As per the Governor's March 22 proclamation, we can temporarily issue a license without the fingerprint background check.
Extensions: As part of the Proclamation of Disaster Emergency in Iowa, Governor Reynolds has directed our agency to provide some professional licensing relief. If your license is set to expire in the near future during this disaster emergency and you are unable to apply to renew, you may contact any consultant in our office to request an extension.

Online Application System: Our application system is entirely online, and we are still processing application requests.
