This page provides the licensure requirements to obtain a substitute or short-term substitute teaching license in Illinois.
If you hold a valid professional educator license, educator license with stipulations or paraprofessional license and hold a bachelor’s degree, you are qualified to be a substitute teacher. You
do not need to hold a substitute teaching license.
