Military Teaching Permit
The Military Teaching Permit is valid for teaching in all Nebraska schools unless someone applies for a nonpublic certificate only. Once issued, a Military Teaching Permit expires August 31 of the third year following the year of issuance.
The requirements for a Military Teaching Permit include the following:
- An application and fee in the TEACH system (Please note that registration for TEACH is required first; then an application can be submitted.)
- Fingerprints (required only if someone has lived outside of Nebraska in the past five years)
- Official Transcript(s)
- Educator Certificate – A valid teaching certificate or permit is required from another state and must show that the certificate or permit has been valid for at least one year.
- Submit evidence of current service in the armed forces of the United States, or evidence of having retired from such service within five years of the date of application. If the applicant for a Military Teaching Permit is the spouse of active or retired military personnel, the applicant must present the same evidence pertaining to his or her spouse.
- Submit a United States Department of Defense Dependent Identification and Privilege Card establishing the applicant’s status as a spouse of a person who is serving on active duty if the applicant is not a current service member in the armed forces of the United States, or retired from such service within five years of the date of application.
