Renewal notice changes

Our renewal reminder will be different the next time you need to renew your license. If we have your email on file, you'll get an email reminder that it's time to renew your license. If we don't have your email, you'll get a mailed letter. This means we won't send you a form to fill out and mail back. You'll be able to renew online.

The new renewal reminder directs you to our new online professional licensing portal. Once logged in, you'll be able to:

  • Start your renewal to see the amount owed
  • Complete the renewal
  • Print your license

You can Log in or sign up to make sure we have your current email or add one if you don't already have one on file.
