Recommended Renewal

Most recommendations for renewal will be submitted through EIS by the SAU office/Head of School. Your employer must have a NH state approved Professional Development Master Plan to receive a recommended renewal.

Paraeducators please note: Not all employers with Professional Development Master Plans include licensed paraeducators under the plan, or include licensed educators working as paraeducators under the plan. Please be sure to check with your employer to find out if you will be recommended for renewal, or if you should renew directly with the DOE (our office is unable to determine this for you).

All expired licenses must be renewed through the DOE Renewal process.

Intern Authorizations cannot be renewed through the Professional Development Master Plan. For more information regarding Intern Authorizations, please review Site-Based Licensing Plan information.

Recommended Renewal Instructions (Educator, School Nurse, Educational Interpreter/Transliterator and Paraeducator)


If you have had any name changes since you previously applied for a credential with our office, you must submit a name change form and receive confirmation that the name change is complete via email prior to beginning this process.

myNHDOE is used as a portal for many NHDOE systems – EIS (Educator Information System) is one of them. Do not create a new myNHDOE account if you have already created one.

Instead, log in or use the Forgot Username/Password link to log into your account if needed.

If you no longer have access to the email you used to set up your myNHDOE account, please email your SAU i4see contact.

If you have ever submitted a test evaluation form, applied for any credential, had test scores submitted from ETS or Pearson to our office, or received a recommendation for licensure from a NH approved educator preparation program, you may already have an EIS account established. This account may or may not have sufficient profile information to associate with your myNHDOE account during the set-up process.
