If you do not renew by June 30, 2020, you must wait until after July 15, 2020 to renew through the new web based system. Paper Renewals will no longer be accepted after June 30, 2020. Watch your emails for information on how to log on once it is active


Online Renewals

The online renewal system is temporarily unavailable. We are preparing a new and improved licensing system for you to have more complete access to your license records.

 
Renewal With a Status Change
Under the new system, you will be allowed to change your status at anytime. Your status change will be referred to board staff for review and you will be provided with conditions of the status change. You may be asked to submit continuing education, additional fees, and in rare cases a supervision plan. Renewal fees are not refundable, so when changing status to a lower feed status, you will not be refunded for the higher amount. For example. If you renew as active and decide to change your status to inactive. You have already paid the active fee, and it is not refundable. Your next renewal will be at the inactive fee.
