Submitting Exam Scores to the Utah State Office of Education

Submitting Exam Scores to the Utah State Office of Education (USOE) for Teacher Licensing

In order to become licensed in Utah, you must first complete a background check through the Utah State Office of Education (USOE) and submit passing score reports for the content exam(s) required for Utah certification. 
When you order a background check through the USOE, you receive a CACTUS ID. This is the number used by the USOE to identify educators in their database.


There are two ways to submit your content exam scores to the USOE:


  • If you have not yet registered for your Praxis content exam(s) you can elect to have your scores submitted to the USOE for you by selecting the USOE as an Official Score Recipient using the recipient code: R8375. 

  • If you have already taken and passed your Praxis content exam(s), email a copy of your score report directly to the USOE: Please include your CACTUS ID in your email.

    • Note: If you don't know your CACTUS ID, you can find it on the Personal Information tab of your CACTUS account, or by contacting WGU's Licensure Office. Licensure can be reached via e-mail at or via phone at 866.889.0132, Option 3.
    • Note: USOE does not need your basic skills exam scores. It is not necessary to send a score report to USOE that contains only your Praxis CORE (5751, 5712, 5722, 5732) scores.

If you have not saved copies of your score reports you may obtain them by logging into your Praxis Account and clicking either the View Current Test Scores or the Order Additional Score Reports link under the Scores heading on the My Praxis Home page.


Note: You must also submit your exam scores to WGU - either by listing WGU as a recipient when registering (Code: A4944) or by following the instructions located in this handbook
