RENEWAL-License Renewal Information

Effective January 1, 2011 licenses and registrations must be renewed online at Renewal information will be mailed to your address of record approximately 60 days prior to the expiration date of your license or registration about how to renew your license online. Online renewal is available 24/7 and payment can be made by either a Visa or MasterCard credit card or by e-check. If an individual holds a professional license and a controlled substance license, both licenses can be renewed online but it is a separate online renewal process for each license.

To avoid paying a late fee you must renew your license or registration online on or before the date it expires. You can still renew online if you are within the 60-day grace period after your license or registration expired but you will be required to pay the renewal fee plus a $20 late fee. If your license or registration expired more than 60 days ago, you must apply for relicensure or re-registration. Regardless of whether or not you receive renewal information, it is your responsibility under Section 333.16201(1) of the Public Health Code to renew your license or registration prior to the expiration date.

Licensees and registrants are also reminded that it is your responsibility under Section 333.16192(1) of the Public Health Code to notify the Bureau of Health Care Services, Health Professions Licensing Division of any name or address change within 30 days after the change occurs. Address changes can also be made online at

You also have the option of providing your email address or updating the email address we have on file for you at In the event we have important information to share regarding a particular profession, we have the ability to send out mass emails to those licensees or registrants.
