"ALERT" $200 Late Fee for Active LCSWs
Effective January 1, 2011, the late fee for Active LCSW renewals is $200. This fee will be applied if a renewal is postmarked in the 30 days following your birth month. Your license will expire at the end of the 30th day following your birth month.
Renewals postmarked after the expiration date cannot be renewed and you will no longer be licensed in the State of Oregon. To practice as an LCSW in Oregon you will need to apply for a new license and meet all requirements in effect at the time your license expired, this includes passing the National ASWB Clinical exam, if you have not taken it previously in this or any other jurisdiction, and the Oreogn Jurisprudence Exam.
Completed Renewal Forms must be received and accepted by the last day of your birth month renewal date, or you will be assessed the appropriate late fee. Late fees are: $200 for Active LCSWs, and $50 for CSWAs, LMSWs, RBSWs, LCSWs on Inactive or Reduced Requirements (Semi-Retired) status.
It is the responsibility of each licensee or certificate holder to notify the Board of any changes to addresses or employer information. Failure to receive a renewal notice from the Board shall not constitute an excuse for failure to pay the renewal fee or to renew one's license/certificate.
