Reinstate lapsed ISBE certificates immediately thanks to new state law

Therapists whose Type 10 and Type 73 Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) certificates have lapsed can now reinstate them immediately thanks to a new state law.

Certificates lapse six months from the expiration of the last registration. Before Senate Bill 3393 passed, therapists had to complete nine semester hours of coursework from a regionally accredited institution of higher education “in the content area that most aligns with the educator’s endorsement area” to reinstate a lapsed certificate. Therapists also had to pay all back fees.

Under this new legislation, therapists can reinstate their certificates immediately by paying all back fees and a $500 penalty, or completing the same nine semester hours previously required.
