Dietetics/Nutrition licenses expire on May 31 of odd years.
Several weeks before the permit expiration date, a renewal notice will be sent to the email address on the record. This notice will explain how to access the online renewal application. To complete the online renewal application, you must use a credit card to pay your renewal fee.
Please keep your contact information in our records up-to-date so that notices we send will reach you. To check and update your contact information online, click Update Contact Information.
To renew an active license, you must attest to completing the required continuing education (CE). Section 4.0 of the Rules and Regulations explains the CE requirements.
If you do not complete renewal before the expiration date, your license will lapse. It is illegal to practice in Delaware while your license is lapsed.
To resume practicing in Delaware, you may file a late renewal application up to one year after the expiration date. 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 one-year period, your license will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware after termination, you must reapply for licensure.
If you are not practicing as a Dietitian/Nutritionist in Delaware, you may request inactive status. To place your license in inactive status, submit a written request and the required status change fee to the Board. 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.
Your license may remain in inactive status for up to five years. To resume practicing in Delaware during the five-year period, you must reactivate your license to active status. 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 for a new license.
