Applicants Who Acquired Their Educator License or Certificate Outside of the United States
If you are from another country and you want to know whether Wyoming will issue you a Wyoming Educator License, your first step is to determine U.S. equivalency of your education program by having your college/university transcript(s) evaluated by one of the transcript evaluation services listed below. With the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree and completion of a teacher preparation program, you may qualify for a Wyoming Educator License using the traditional route.
