Renewal Information for Individual Licenses

Individuals must renew their Kansas professional license every two years to avoid expiration and/or cancellation.
Last names beginning with letters A-L renew in even-numbered years and last names beginning with letters M-Z renew in odd-numbered years. Each license type has it's own renewal period window (dates are listed below). Each renewal period allows 60 days to renew before license expiration and then an additional 60 day grace period  before license cancellation. If a license cancels due to non-renewal during the renewal period and grace period then the individual must apply for license reinstatement. You may not offer to practice with an expired or cancelled license.

Continuing Education Information: 

You will be required to certify that you have complied with the Board's continuing education requirements to renew your license. For more information please view  Continuing Education Guidelines and Continuing Education Rules and Regulations .

If you have not yet completed the continuing education
required to renew you may opt to place your license into Inactive Status by renewing via  paper form and selecting the “I request my license be placed into INACTIVE status” checkbox. A renewal fee is still required or the license will not be renewed into the Inactive status. You may not practice or offer to practice in Kansas while in Inactive status. Upon completion of the required continuing education simply submit a Return to Practice Application to request your license be placed in Active status again.

If this is the first renewal of your professional license no continuing education is due. Select that you have met the Board's continuing education requirements and submit payment.
