What are the requirements for admission?

Candidates interested in the MS/LIS School Librarian Licensure program must first be admitted and enrolled as an iSchool student before their application to the School Librarian Licensure program is reviewed. Prospective students who already hold an Illinois teaching license should not apply to the School Librarian Licensure program. Licensed Illinois teachers must meet the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) requirements for adding the PreK-12 Library Information Specialist endorsement to their current license. The requirements for this endorsement are explained on the School Librarian endorsement page

When is my application due?

Interested students must apply into the School Librarian Licensure program by October 1 for spring semester admission and by February 15 for summer/fall admission.
