690:10-9-7. Inactive status fee
A one-time fee of twenty-five dollars ($25.00) shall be charged a licensed speech-language pathologist, audiologist, speech-language pathology assistant or audiology assistant to place his license on inactive status, provided that, prior to expiration of the license, the licensee makes written application to the Board for such status.
Thereafter, the licensee may reactivate the license upon payment of a reactivation fee equal to one and one-half (1 1/2) times the current license renewal fee. A licensee must maintain compliance with continuing education requirements in order to be placed on and continue in an inactive status. During the period of time the license is on inactive status, the licensee shall not engage in the practice of speech-language pathology or audiology in the State of Oklahoma except as permitted in the Speech-Language Pathology and Audiology Licensing Act, 59 O.S., Section 1616, as amended.
