A professional license cycle is determined by the date a license is issued or renewed and ending on June 30th of the license expiration year. A Level 1 license is valid for 3 years, a Level 2 license is valid for 5 years, and a Level 3 license is valid for 7 years.

If you hold a current Utah Educator License, only professional learning activities completed within the current renewal cycle are valid, starting the date the license was renewed.
