License Renewal Information 


Minnesota veterinary licenses are issued for a two-year period.  Even-numbered licenses renew on March 1 of even years and odd-numbered licenses renew on March 1 of odd years.

NOT RECEIVING THE RENEWAL NOTICE DOES NOT EXEMPT A LICENSEE FROM LATE FEES!

If your license is up for renewal and you have not received the notice by the end of December, contact the Board Office or simply renew online with your credit card, or print and complete the renewal form to mail with your check or money order.

If you practice in Minnesota, you must have an active license.  To renew in active status, you must certify that you will have completed 40 hours of continuing education during the previous two-year renewal period March 1 through February 28.  (Do NOT send CE documentation with your renewal application.)  The current fee for an active license is $220 for two years (includes $20 legislated Office of Enterprise Technology surcharge).

If you do not practice in Minnesota but wish to maintain your license, you may renew your license in inactive status.  CE is not required for an inactive license; however, to convert the license to active status, you will need to document that you have completed the necessary CE.  The renewal fee for an inactive license is $100 for two years.

A late fee of one-half the renewal fee will be assessed to renewals postmarked after February 28 of the renewal year.  Licenses not renewed 60 days after the renewal date will be suspended for non-payment.
