License Renewal

Information About Renewals

Podiatrist licenses expire on June 30 of even years (e.g., 2018, 2020).

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 professional licensure system. 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, 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 Manage Profile link in DELPROS.

Renewing Active Licenses

An active license must be renewed in DELPROS every two years before the expiration date. During renewal, you are asked to attest to completing the required continuing education (CE).

For information about CE requirements and audits, click on the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Section 6.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations. After the renewal, a percentage of licensees will be randomly selected for audit of their CE.

Renewing An Expired License

If you do not complete renewal by 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 for 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 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 by the end of the one-year period, your license will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware after termination, you must reapply for licensure in DELPROS as a new applicant.

Inactive and Reactivating Licenses

If you hold an active license but are not practicing in Delaware, you may request to place your license in inactive status through a Service Request in DELPROS. You must request inactive status before your late renewal period ends (June 30 of odd years). You cannot practice in Delaware while your license is in inactive status.

Your license can be on inactive status for up to five years. To maintain your license in inactive status, you must renew it. Renewal will keep you license in inactive status for two more years. CE is not required for renewal, however CE is required to re-activate your license.

To resume practicing in Delaware, you must reactivate your license through a Service Request in DELPROS. The amount of CE required to reactivate depends on how long your license was inactive. See Section 5.3 of the Rules and Regulations for details.
