You will need the following in order to complete your license renewal:

  1. Name (as it appears on your license)
  2. Date of birth
  3. Last four digits of your SSN
  4. Valid credit or debit card for payment
  5. Continuing Education information

During the renewal, you will report continuing education. You will need the date of the course/class/training, the sponsor organization, type of training (i.e. general, ethics, supervision) and number of hours. This information will be reported on the CEU page of the renewal. You will not be required to upload any CEU documentation during the renewal process. CEU’s used to renew your license are subject to audit. If you are selected for an audit, you will be asked to provide proof of attendance/completion for all CEU’s listed on your renewal application.

The fee to renew a license is $225. A renewed license is valid until November 30, 2024. If you wish to inactivate your license rather than renew your license, please contact the office for an Inactive License application. You must renew or inactive a license by November 30, 2022 or it will expire.

This renewal application must be completed by the licensee holder. By clicking Submit & Continue, I hereby certify that I am the licensee named and I am completing this renewal application. I understand that the completed renewal is valid through November 30, 2024.

*Your password defaults to the last four of your SSN.
