Licensee Responsibilites

License Renewal Term

The license renewal term is 24 months beginning on July 1 and ending on June 30.

Submission of license renewal application

A licensee must submit to the Board a license renewal application on a form provided by the board.  Board policy requires the renewal application to be received by May 31 of the year it expires, allowing sufficient time to process before the renewal before the June 30 expiration.  The application form must be signed by the licensee and include evidence of participation in approved continuing education programs, as described in part 6900.0300, and any other information as the board may reasonably require.

A renewal application postmarked after June 30 in the renewal year shall be returned to the licensee for addition of the late renewal fee. A license renewal application postmarked after June 30 in the renewal year is not complete until the late renewal fee has been received by the board. Any time after July 1 of the applicable year, the board will send to the last address on file with the board, a notice to a licensee who has not completed and submitted a license renewal application. The notice will state that the licensee has failed to make application for renewal; the amount of renewal and late fees and information about continuing education that must be submitted in order for the license to be renewed; that the licensee may voluntarily terminate the license by notifying the board; and that failure to respond to the notice by the date specified, which date must be at least 30 days after the notice is sent by the board, either by applying for license renewal as provided in subpart 1b or by notifying the board that the licensee has voluntarily terminated the license, will result in expiration of the license and terminating the right to practice.  Failure of a licensee to receive notification because of the licensee's failure to provide the board with a current mailing address is not grounds for later challenge of the termination.

If the application for renewal as provided in subpart 1 or notice of voluntary termination is not received by the board by the date specified in the notice, the license will expire and the licensee's right to practice terminates on the date specified in the notice. The expiration and termination will not be considered a disciplinary action against the licensee.

A licensee may indicate on the application to voluntarily terminate the license.

A license that has expired under this part may be reinstated under part 6900.0210.

Name and Address Change

A DPM who has changed names must notify the board in writing as soon as possible and request a revised renewal certificate. The board may require substantiation of the name change by requiring official documentation.

A DPM must maintain with the board a correct mailing address to receive board communications and notices. A DPM who has changed addresses must notify the board in writing as soon as possible. Placing a notice in first class United States mail, postage prepaid and addressed to the licensee at the licensee's last known address, constitutes valid service.

Continuing Education Requirements

Each person licensed to practice dietetics and nutrition in this state shall, as a prerequisite for the continued renewal of the person's license, obtain a minimum of 40 continuing education units every two years by participating in CPME or Board approved continuing education programs.


Name and address change

We need validation of your marriage certificate or divorce decree. Merely copy the document and fax, scan and email, or mail the copy to the Board office. There is no fee for this service. Your name will be updated in the database. During renewals, the board staff will update your renewal certificate with the name change. It is best to send in the name change documents first and then renew online once the name change has occurred in the database. The name change occurs on the website the following day.
