Working with students in a supportive role is one of the most rewarding decisions you can make. Becoming a paraprofessional is one avenue to making a difference in students' lives.
There are several pathways to becoming a licensed paraprofessional. You may apply for your paraprofessional license IF:
- You hold an Associate's Degree or Higher OR
- You have successfully completed 60 semester hours of college coursework OR
- You do not have 60 semester hours or an Associate's Degree or Higher but have received a high school diploma or GED along with a passing score on the paraprofessional test
If you meet the requirements for the third option above but still need to complete the paraprofessional examination, ROE 4 can help! The testing fee is $50.00 (cash, check, or debit/credit card if paying in-person). Note that registration can be done in-person at Boone-Winnebago ROE 4 or online.

Refunds will not be processed unless this criteria is met.
