All Psychologists licensees expire on June 30th of each even year. Renewal notices are sent to the last known address we have in the licensure database, and are sent approximately 90 days prior to expiration of the license. Renewals will not be processed prior to 90 days of the license expiration date. The notices are a courtesy sent to licensees, but the responsibility to renew a license on time, remains with the licensee. All renewals require 50 hours of continuing education, inclusive of 3 hours of ethics and 6 hours of diagnosis and treatment, earned in the 2 years preceding renewal expiration date.

The required number of hours needed are pro-rated for periods of renewal which are less than the full 2 years.
