License Renewal: LPC Annual Renewal
The deadline for the LPC annual renewal is June 30th. In order to renew your license without penalty, your completed renewal materials must be submiotted on or before the expiration date of your license.
The annual renewal fee is $80.00.
You must complete at least twenty (20) hours of counseling related continuing education, including three (3) hours of face-to-face and pre-approved continuing education in counseling ethics.
The rules require that continuing education hours for counseling ethics and counseling supervision must be accrued face-to-face and must be pre-approved by the Board. Home-study and technology-assisted courses must also be pre-approved by the Board. No more than ten (10) hours may be accrued through home study and/or technology-assisted learning per renewal period.
In order to maintain your status as an LPC approved supervisor you must complete three (3) hours of face-to-face and pre-approved continuing education in counseling supervision each renewal period. If you do not complete the requirement annually and you wish to renew your approved supervisor status, you are required to complete and submit the hours for the years you did not not renew.
You may place your license on inactive status, if your license is in good standing, by submitting a one-time $25.00 fee, and your original license. A license placed on inactive status may remain inactive for as long as you desire. You do not need to accrue continuing education or pay any additional fees while your license is inactive. You may reactive your license by submitting the prorated fee for the month you wish to reactive.
If your license is in good standing, you may retire your license. A retired license cannot be reactivated but it does not prevent an individual from reapplying for licensure in the future.
If you fail to renew your license by the expiration date, your license will be suspended forfeiting all right and privileges granted by the license. You have the right to renew the license by payment of the $80.00 renewal fee, the $25.00 late renewal fee and submission of twenty (20) hours of counseling related continuing education and three (3) hours of face-to-face and pre-approved counseling ethics hours.
Licensees not renewed within the one (1) year renewal period shall be permanently expired and shall not be reinstated.
