3-31-19 License Renewal Requirements for LCSW, LMFT, & LMHC
Current licenses expire at midnight, Eastern Time, on March 31, 2019.
IF THIS IS YOUR FIRST RENEWAL, YOU DO NOT NEED ANY CEUS AT ALL. YOU MUST RENEW AND PAY THE FEE BUT DO NOT NEED CEUS UNTIL YOUR NEXT RENEWAL.
If this is not your first renewal, you must complete the following courses: Ethics & Boundaries (3 ceus); and Medical Erorr Prevention (2 ceus). These two courses are required every renewal. You must complete a course in Domestic Violence (2 ceus) at least once every third renewal, and a 3-hour Laws & Rules Review Course (3 ceus) every third renewal.
In order for ceus to ‘count’ toward a renewal, they must be earned during that biennium, or current renewal cycle. Licenses are renewed before the end of the day on March 31 of the odd years. For ceus to count toward the renewal of March 31, 2019, they had to be earned between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2019.
To ensure you receive your renewal notification from the department, your current mailing address must be on file. Failure to renew an active or inactive license by the expiration date will result in the license being placed in delinquent status. Failure by a delinquent licensee to renew before the expiration of the current licensure cycle renders the license null and void without any further action by the board or the department.A licensee who remains on inactive status for more than two consecutive biennial licensure cycles and who wishes to reactivate the license may be required to demonstrate competency to resume active practice by sitting for a special purpose examination or by completing other reactivation requirements.
Licensees requesting to reactivate their license from inactive or retired status are required to pay additional fees and comply with specific continuing education requirements. Please contact the board office at firstname.lastname@example.org to request your reactivation requirements.
If you are reactivating your license, please refer to the Laws & Rules governing your practice for additional requirements.
The department will renew your license upon receipt of:
- Completed renewal application
- Required fees
The last day to renew your license is on Sunday, March 31, 2019. Our office is open Mon – Fri from 9:30EST and is not open evenings or weekends so be sure to complete all of your course requirements prior to 4:30PM on Friday, March 29, 2019 so we can post your course completions with CE Broker and you will be able to renew.
