License Renewal



Information About Renewals for All Licenses

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. You possibly may have to submit documents.

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.

All notices about professional licenses, such as renewal and audit notices, will be 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 the Manage Profile link in DELPROS.
