License Renewal

Information About Renewals

Psychologist licenses and Psychological Assistant registrations expire on July 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, 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 License and Registrations

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 (CEs).

In addition to completing the renewal application, Psychologist Assistants must arrange for their supervising Psychologist(s) to submit a Supervision Report for Psychological Assistants Registration Renewal  form(Section 9.6 of the Rules and Regulations). The Psychological Assistant’s registration will not be renewed until the Board office receives all supervisory reports.

For information about CE requirements and audits, click on the Continuing Education and Audit Information webpage or see Section 10.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations. After the renewal, a percentage of licensees/registrants will be randomly selected for audit of their CE.

Inactive and Reactivating Licenses

If you hold an active Psychologist 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 may request inactive status at any time before the termination date of your license (August 30 of same odd year). You cannot practice in Delaware while your license is in inactive status.

To maintain your inactive license, you must renew it in DELPROS. Renewal will keep your license in inactive status for two more 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 Section 5.4.1 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.

Renewing an Expired License/Registration

If you do not renew your license/registration before the expiration date, the license/registration will expire. It is illegal to practice in Delaware while your license/registration is expired. You may file a late renewal application for a period of one month 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 the license/registration within one month, it will terminate. To resume practicing in Delaware after termination, you must apply in DELPROS as a new applicant.
