Dietetics/Nutrition licenses expire on May 31 of odd years (e.g. 2019, 2021).
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.
An active license must be renewed in DELPROS every two years before the expiration date. During renewal, you are asked to attest that you have completed the required continuing education units (CE).
For complete information on the CE and Audit requirements, see the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Section 4.0 of the Rules and Regulations. After the renewal, a percentage of licensees are randomly selected for audit of their CE.
If you do not renew your license before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to practice in Delaware while your license is expired.
You may submit a late renewal application up to one year after the expiration date in DELPROS. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you can submit a late renewal application, do not resume practicing until your license is actually renewed to active status. The late period is not a “grace period.”
If you fail to renew within one year, the license will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware, you must apply in DELPROS as a new applicant.
If you hold an active license but are not practicing in Delaware, you may request to place your license in inactive status by submitting a Service Request in DELPROS. You must request inactive status before the termination date of your license (May 31 of following even year). You must pay a status change fee to go inactive. You cannot practice in Delaware while your license is in inactive status. Your license may remain in inactive status for up to five years.
To resume practicing in Delaware, you must reactivate your license by submitting a Service Request in DELPROS. For more information on reactivating an inactive license, see 24 Del. C . §3809.
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.
