Officials Licensing Center

Welcome to the IHSA's Official Licensing Center.  Please read these instructions carefully.

In this area you may apply to become an official, renew your officiating licenses, or apply for additional sport licenses.

The annual fee is $70 for the first sport, $20 for the second sport, and $15 for each additional sport. These fees are not refundable. All payments in the Official Licensing Center are received electronically. The IHSA accepts all major credit or debit card information. Credit card information is passed through a secure server, is not stored, and will not be shared with any other entity.

If you do not have a credit or debit card, you should continue with the process, print out the completed order form at the end, and then mail it with your payment to the IHSA Officials Department along with a $10 service charge.

Late Renewal

Your transaction today will apply to the current 2022-23 school term. If you are renewing a license, you will be charged a late penalty of $30. The annual license renewal period runs from May 1 to June 30.

Please view the 2022-23 IHSA Officials Handbook for the requirements and expectations of an IHSA licensed official.

If you have a question about this process, please contact the IHSA Officials Department.
