Licensing and Regulatory Affairs
PLEASE NOTE: We are moving to a new online licensing and regulatory database for health and occupational professionals, called Michigan Professional Licensing User System (MiPLUS). The launch date for this profession in the new system is August 25, 2020. In order to allow time for migration of current licensing records into the new system, our office will be unable to process license applications, license renewals, or changes to licenses between August 3, 2020 and August 25, 2020. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Click here for more information regarding our conversion to the new system.
