Requirements to renew a Restricted Substitute License
Restricted Substitute licenses require 10 PDUs per year of active licensure to renew.
Effective in November of 2014, the term of license for a Restricted Substitute changed from a three (3) year term to one (1) year or less and expires on June 30 of each school year for which it is issued. Please refer to the letter emailed to you when your license was issued to determine the number of PDUs you are required to submit.
To complete the renewal process, you must submit:
The C-1 application form and the $100 fee to TSPC;
A letter from district requesting renewal:
Evidence of a passing score as currently specified by the Commission on a test of basic verbal and computational skills, unless the applicant has a master’s degree (additional information provided below); and
Verification of ten (10) PDUs earned.
Go to  and follow the instructions.
Pay the $25 processing fee (via PayPal)
OREPDC will email you with further instructions on where to send your materials. You will be offered the option to mail, email or fax your documentation.
OREPDC will submit your verification electronically to TSPC. You must submit the C-1 application and $100 fee to TSPC.

Submit an Application for License or Registration (C-1 form) and $100 processing fee to TSPC. It does not matter which document TSPC receives first. If the PDU verification is received prior to the C-1 application, we hold the PDU verification until we receive the C-1 and fee.
Your C1 form and $100 processing fee must be received in our office by the expiration of your license or late fees will accrue. The late fee is $25 for each month or portion of a month for which your license is expired, up to a maximum of $125.
Your application can be mailed to TSPC at 250 Division ST NE, Salem, OR 97301.
You may pay by check; money order made out to "TSPC;" or by credit card, over the phone by calling (503) 378-3586. (We do not accept American Express.)
If this is your first renewal, you must also:
Submit an official passing score on one of the following basic skills exams (Reading, Writing and Mathematics), if you have not already done so:
·         Praxis 1: Pre-Professional Skills Assessment (PPST); or
·         California Basic Education Skills Test (CBEST); or
·         Washington Educator Skills Test – Basic (WEST-B); or
·         ORELA: Essential Academic Skills Exam (EAS).
Note: The basic skills exam will be waived if you submit sealed official transcripts verifying completion of a doctorate degree from a regionally accredited institution or foreign equivalent.
