Frequently Asked Questions

• How do I verify my Michigan license to another state?

• Do I need to complete continuing education?

• How long are the Counselor licenses issued for? Can I renew my license early? How will I know when I need to renew?

• If I have been convicted of a felony or a misdemeanor, will this stop me from obtaining a Michigan license?

• The application asks for the state(s) I have been licensed in and asks for the basis of licensure. What does that mean? What if I'm licensed in more than one state? Do you need verification from all states I have ever held a license in?

• What happens if my license or registration expires?

• I need to verify whether someone has a license. How can I do that?

• How can I change my name or address?

• How long will you keep my licensure application on file?

• How long does it take for your office to receive my correspondence?

• How long does it take to process my application?

• Is everything in my file complete? How can I find out what is missing?

• What is the purpose of the different types of applications?

• My renewal date is coming up soon. I know that the license/registration will be valid until the expiration date after I renew. Since I will be moving next year, I only want to renew it for 1 year. Can I do that?
