(b) Paper Renewals - For individuals who have not renewed their license online via the lnternet, a renewal application form will be mailed to each individual licensed by the Board to the last address provided to the Board. Failure to receive such notification does not relieve the licensee from the responsibility of meeting all requirements for renewal.
(2) To be eligible for licensure renewal, a licensee must submit to the Board Administrative Office on or before the due date for renewal all the following:
(a) A completed Board licensure renewal form.
(b) The Renewal Fee as provided in rule 1020-01-.02(1)(b).

(4) Reinstatement of an Expired License. Reinstatement of a license that has expired may be accomplished upon meeting the following conditions:
(a) At the discretion of the Board, either appear before it or submit a notarized statement setting forth the cause for failure to renew;
(b) Payment of all past due Renewal Fees and State Regulatory Fees. This amount shall not exceed the equivalent of the renewal fee at the time the reinstatement application is submitted plus the state regulatory fee times two (2);
(c) Payment of the Late Renewal Fee provided in Rule 1020-01-.02(1)(d);
