Renewal Application Deadlines
You may submit an application for renewal of your license up to 45 days prior to, or 60 days after, your expiration date. However, if you submit your application after the expiration date, a late fee is assessed. If a compete renewal application is not received within 60 days of your expiration/renewal date, the license automatically expires, retroactive to your expiration date. Within one year of your expiration date, you may reactivate your license. After that time, you may reapply for licensure provided you meet all requirements in effect at the time of reapplication.
If your application is received after midnight on the expiration date, a late fee of 1/4 of the renewal fee will be assessed.
Authorization to Practice Pending Review and Potential Unlicensed Practice
If your renewal application was received by the deadline, you are authorized to practice social work after the expiration date while your application for license renewal is being reviewed.
If your application is not received by midnight on the expiration date, you are not authorized to practice social work after the expiration date and may be submit to disciplinary action by the Board if you engage in social work practice after this date.
