We will roll out implementation of online renewals in multiple phases. As this list is changing monthly, please check back.  If your profession is currently not on the list, please do not wait to renew as this may result in your credential expiring.

Updated:  We have implemented a $2 convenience fee

While the online renewal process is more convenient for our customers, it does not reduce agency costs.  We will continue to mail renewal notices and licenses to our credential holders.  Our current renewal process is already mostly automated; therefore, this new optional system will not decrease staff time.  The purpose of convenience fee is to help cover costs of making the online system available and credit card processing.
