$50.00 late fee: LMFT licenses renewed between January 1 – January 31, 2020 will be assessed a $50.00 late fee. To avoid the late fee, the LMFT license must be renewed by midnight December 31, 2019. You are strongly encouraged to renew early online, allowing time for any technical difficulties which may occur. LMFT license renewal is not allowed after January 31; contact the Board for information on license reinstatement. 

• If you do not intend to renew your license, you must notify the Board in writing via US Mail or email at  Absent such notice, the Board will terminate your license for non-renewal effective December 31, 2019.

Continuing Education:  This is a continuing education reporting year.  All LMFTs licensed prior to January 1, 2018 are required to have completed 40 hours of Board-approved continuing education (which includes at least three (3) hours of Ethics CE + four (4) hours of Supervision CE if LMFT holds Board-approved supervisor status) and have documentation of approval/completion to provide to the Board upon request.  If licensed after January 1, 2018, check CE proration chart for number of CE hours you must have completed. 
License renewal requires you to choose between two CE options:

(1) Affirming completion of all required CE hours, with Board-issued CE approval numbers and documentation of CE completion in place; or
(2) Requesting an extension to complete CE requirements and acknowledging the requirement to file documentation of CE program completion and Board-issued CE approval numbers for all CE hours on or before April 1, 2020. 

 Workforce Survey:     The Board of Marriage and Family Therapy continues to partner with the MN Dept. of Health Office of Rural Health and Primary Care in a statewide workforce survey and requests the cooperation of all LMFTs.  Licensees will be asked to complete the survey as part of the online license renewal process.   

LAMFT renewal (for licenses expiring 1/31/2020) will open January 2, 2020.
