for renewal and pay the necessary fees via the Internet. The application to
renew can be accessed at:
2. Paper Renewals - For
individuals who have not renewed their registration online via the Internet, a
renewal application form will be mailed to each individual registered by the

notification does not relieve the registrant from the responsibility of meeting
all requirements for renewal.
A registration issued pursuant to these
rules is renewable by the expiration date. To be eligible for renewal an
individual must submit to the Division of Health Related Boards on or before
the expiration date the following:
