Regular Licenses Expire​ January 30, 2018. For Conditional or Provisional Licenses see our application page.
 
Renewal Deadline is December 31, 2017
 
The online renewal system will open around November 1, 2017. You cannot renew before the system is available.
 
Make sure your contact information is updated so that you receive your renewal notices.
 
Here’s what you need to do to renew your license:
 
1.      Go to our website at www.oregon.gov/bspa.
2.      The Online Renewal Link is on the homepage. Sign in using your license number, and the last 4 digits of your SSN.  You can find your license number by using our Licensee Directory at https://hrlb.oregon.gov/bspa/licenseelookup/, also located on the left side list of tabs on our homepage.
3.      Gather your professional development (PD) documentation, making sure that you meet Board rules (See our Professional Development page) for the number required for your license type. It is only in the case that you are selected for a professional development audit that you must submit the documentation to the Board office. Otherwise, all professional development documentation must be maintained for at least four years.  
4.      Complete each page of the renewal application. Upon completion, pay your license fees online via credit card, or print the confirmation page and mail it to the Board office with a check.
 
Fees for your 2018-19 License:
 
SLP and/or AUD License (biennial)
$ 210
SLPA Certification (biennial)
$   65
Delinquent Fee
$ 100
 
Late renewal applications must include a delinquent fee to be processed.  Incomplete applications require a delinquent fee payment before they can be re-processed.  A late, incomplete application will be assessed two delinquent fees. Failure to submit audit materials (if applicable) or a failed audit will result in additional fees.  
 
Professional Development*:
You must report the following number of hours of accepted or approved PD completed between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2017.
SLPs and Audiologists – 30 hours
SLPAs – 15 hours
Dual SLP/Aud – 60 hours (15 hours may count towards both license types)
*If you were initially licensed on or after August 1, 2016, your PD requirement is half the total (15 SLPs/Auds, 7.5 SLPAs).
*If you were initially licensed on or after August 1, 2017, you do not have a PD requirement.
 
Changing License Status: To change to an inactive license, please review the “Inactive License Information and Request Form” on our Applications page and contact our office for instructions on how to renew your license in inactive status. Your renewal request must still be submitted before the deadline to avoid a late fee.
(Inactive licenses do not allow a person to legally provide professional services or purport to be an SLP, SLPA, or audiologist in Oregon.)
 
This year the Board will be conducting background checks on all renewals. There are no additional fees for this.
Please contact us at 971-673-0220 or SpeechAud.Board@state.or.us with any questions about renewals.
