Application for Entitlement

Entitlement is the authority given by the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) to the University Licensure Officer to validate and enter endorsements into a teacher’s ELIS account. This by-passes ISBE transcript evaluation. The Licensure Officer is assuring ISBE that all requirements for the endorsement have been met.
