License Renewal



Information About Renewals for All Licenses

Landscape Architect licenses and Certificates of Authorization expire on January 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.


Renewing Active Landscape Architect Licenses

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 requirements, click on the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Section 7.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations. After the renewal, a percentage of licensees are randomly selected for audit of their CE.

 

Renewing Certificates of Authorization Licenses

Certificate of Authorization (COA) licenses must be renewed in DELPROS every two years before the expiration date. In addition to completing the online renewal application, you must submit a Verification of Landscape Architect in Charge Information form to update information on the management of the business.

 

Renewing Expired Licenses

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 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, 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 60 days, the license will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware, you must apply in DELPROS as a new applicant.

 

Inactive & Reactivating Licenses

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 expiration date of your license. If your expiration date has passed, you must first renew your license, then request inactive status because your license has to be in active to go inactive. You cannot practice in Delaware while your license is in inactive status.

To maintain your inactive license, you must renew it in DELPROS and pay an inactive renewal fee. Renewal will keep your license in inactive status for two more years. Your license can remain on inactive status for a maximum of ten years. CE is not required for renewal, however, you will need CE to reactivate your license.

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 Section 8.0 and 8.2 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.
