Renewing Active Psychologist Licenses and Psychological Assistant Registrations
To renew a license/registration in Active status, you must attest to completing the required continuing education (CE). See Section 10.0 of the Board's Rules and Regulations for complete information on CE requirements. After the renewal, a percentage of licensees/registrants will be randomly selected for audit of their CE.
In addition to completing the renewal application, Psychological Assistants must arrange for their supervising Psychologist(s) to submit a Supervision Report for Psychological Assistants - Registration Renewal (Section 9.6 of the Rules and Regulations). The Psychological Assistant’s registration will not be renewed until the Board office receives all supervisory reports.
Renewing Inactive Psychologist Licenses
If you are not practicing in Delaware, you may submit a request to place your license in Inactive status. You cannot practice in Delaware while your license is in Inactive status. To maintain your license in Inactive status, you must renew it. Renewal will continue your license in Inactive status for two more years, up to five years altogether. To resume practicing in Delaware, you must reactivate your license. To reactivate an Inactive license, see Section 5.4.1 of the Board's Rules and Regulations.
Renewing an Expired License/Registration
If you do not renew your license/registration before the expiration date, the license/registration will expire. It is illegal to practice in Delaware while your license/registration is expired. You may file a late renewal application for a period of one month after the expiration date. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. However, this late period is not a "grace period," and you should not resume practicing in Delaware until the license/registration has been renewed.
If you fail to renew the license/registration by the end of the one-month period, it will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware, you must reapply.
