News & Announcements


Late License Renewal

All Minnesota PT and PTA licenses expired on December 31. The annual renewal fee is $60 and the late fee is $20. You must have an active license to practice as a physical therapist or physical therapist assistant in Minnesota. Practice under a lapsed or non-renewed license is a basis for discipline under MS 148.75 (a) (18). Any practice after December 31, 2018, will be looked at as practicing without a license until your license has been renewed for 2019. 

Please contact the Board office at physical.therapy@state.mn.us to request a late paper renewal form.
