Renew a License

When do I renew?

  • Even-numbered licensees renew in odd years, and odd-numbered licensees renew in even years.
  • Renewals are due (must be postmarked) by the last day of your birth month. For example, if your license number is even and your birthday is March 12th, then your completed renewal notice & affidavit along with payment must be postmarked by March 31st each odd year.
  • Renewal notices are mailed out at least 6 weeks prior to the due date.  Please refer to the Renewal Schedule.

How do I renew?

  • When you receive your renewal, simply complete the renewal form and return it with your payment in the envelope provided.  Check or money order only; make payable to OBOP.
  • If you have misplaced your renewal form, you can use this fillable replacement form: Renewal Form   or   Non-fillable Renewal Form.
  • Change of Address form- Please make sure your contact information is up to date so that you receive your renewal and other important Board mailings (Non-fillable form).
  • Your CE reporting period is the same as your license renewal period.  See Continuing Education.
  • Healthcare Workforce Survey- must be completed by all licensees at renewal.  You must print and send the proof of completion page with your renewal.
  • Late and incomplete renewals are subject to the delinquent fee.

Has my renewal processed yet?

  • Renewals are typically processed in batches twice weekly, so expect your updated license expiration date to show up on the licensee lookup within 1-4 business days of the office's receipt of your renewal. Atypical renewals do take longer to process.
  • Please note that even if a license appears to be expired because it shows past the expiration date, it may still be processing. Also, there is a 30-day grace period for late payments, so a license remains valid 30 days past the stated expiration date. After that, the status will show "Lapsed."

Method of Payment

Check or money order only, made payable to "BOP."  Cards, cash, and e-payments are not accepted.
