License renewal may be verified through the online License Lookup
link located on the home page of the Board website. Your license will reflect the new renewal date immediately following submission of payment. Ensure you receive email confirmation of payment. Renewal license cards will be mailed to the mailing address on file.
To avoid a late fee, renew your license thirty (30) days prior to the expiration date listed on your license card. A late fee
will be assessed for renewals that are submitted online during the thirty (30) days prior to or after the renewal deadline.
The Board makes every effort to send renewal notices at least sixty (60) calendar days before the expiration date listed on your license card to the last known address on file with the Board. Per Minnesota Statute §148.6423 Subd. 3
, the licensee's failure to receive notice does not relieve the licensee of the obligation to meet the renewal deadline and other requirements for license renewal.
Auditing of Continuing Education:
The Board conducts audits on a percentage of license renewals based upon random selection. As a licensee, it is your responsibility to maintain documentation for a minimum of two (2) years after the last day of the biennial licensure period in which the contact hours were earned. (Minnesota Statute §148.6443 Subd. 6
