License Renewal

Information About Renewals

Chiropractor licenses expire on June 30 of even years (e.g., 2020, 2022)

A few months before the expiration date of your license, a renewal notice will be sent to the email address on the record. This notice will explain how to access your online renewal application in DELPROS, our online portal. To complete the online renewal application, you must log in to your account, answer questions, and use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.

All notices about professional licenses, such as renewal and audit notices, are sent by email only. It is important to keep your contact information up-to-date so that all the notices we send reach you. To check and update your contact information online, click on Manage Profile link in DELPROS.

Renewing Active Licenses

An active license must be renewed in DELPROS every two years before the expiration date. During the renewal, you are asked to attest that you have completed the required continuing education credits (CE). The CE requirement includes at least three credit hours must contain ethics, recordkeeping, or risk management.

For information about CE requirements and audits, click on the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Section 2.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations. After the renewal, a percentage of licensees will be randomly selected for an audit of their CE.

Renewing Expired Licenses

If you do not complete renewal before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to practice in Delaware while your license is lapsed.

You may file a late renewal application up to 60 days after the expiration date in DELPROS. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you can file a late renewal application, it is illegal to practice until the license is actually renewed. The late period is not a “grace period”.

If you fail to renew by the end of the 60-day period, your license will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware after termination, you must reapply for licensure in DELPROS as a new applicant. See Section 3.1 of the Rules and Regulations for the CE and other renewal/reapplying requirements.

Inactive & Reactivating Licenses

If you hold an active license but are not practicing in Delaware, you may place your license in inactive status through a Service Request in DELPROS. You must request inactive status before your late renewal period ends (August 31 of same even year). There is a status change fee. Your license may remain in inactive status for up to five years. You are not permitted to practice in Delaware while your license is inactive.

To resume practicing in Delaware during the five-year period, you must reactivate your license to active status through a Service Request in DELPROS. For more information, see 24 Del. C. §709.

If you fail to reactivate during the five-year period, your license will terminate. If you wish to resume practicing after your license has terminated, you must reapply in DELPROS as a new applicant.
