For payment of licensure fees, you can provide a check or money order payable to the Treasurer of Virginia to the PWCS Office of Certification with your licensure paperwork, or you can pay online directly with the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) and then send your PWCS Certification Specialist a copy of the receipt.

How to Pay Online

  1. Go to the Licensure Fee Online Payment Option section (teal background) of the VDOE Licensure webpage.
  2. Select the "Pay Now" button – do not use the "Apply Online Now for an Initial Virginia License" link if you've accepted a contract at PWCS and will be submitting your application through the PWCS Office of Certification.

When using the VDOE payment portal, it will ask you for your license or application number. Please note that you may just include the last four digits of your Social Security number in this section.

Please remember that a copy of the online payment receipt does need to be forwarded to your PWCS Certification Specialist or enclosed in your licensure packet that you are sending to PWCS Certification.
