Does the Board have your current address?
The Board sends renewal and other important notices by mail. It is in your best interest and a requirement of your licensure/
certification (MN Rule 1800.0120) to notify the Board within 30 days of any address, phone or name change.
Licenses and certificates expire on June 30 of each even-numbered year, regardless of when in the biennium they are issued (MN Statute 326.10 Subd. 8). Most recently, that expiration date was June 30, 2016.
Online renewals are closed; however, you can renew your license for 2016-2018 by using the print (PDF) renewal form below. Mail the form with your check or money order to the Board office. See the instructions on the renewal form for more information. If, after reviewing that information you require further assistance, contact the Board office at 651-296-2388.
Note: You must meet continuing education (CE) requirements prior to renewing.
2016 Renewal Form CE Requirements
To check your license or certificate status:
Reinstatement (License/Certificate Expired Prior to July 1, 2014)
If your license or certificate expired June 30, 2014 or before, please email email@example.com to request instructions for reinstatement.
After receiving your information, the Board will send you a reinstatement form customized with your particular fees and continuing education requirements. Reinstatement requirements are described in MN Statute 326.10 Subd.9.
If you are retired and do not wish to renew your license, but would like to be listed on the Board's roster as "retired" rather than "expired," please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your retirement.
You may continue to use your professional title, preceded by the term "Retired" (i.e., John Doe, Retired Architect), but you may not practice or do anything that requires a current license. This requirement is described in MN Statute 326.02 Subd. 1.
