All new applicants who are issued a license within 120 days of the upcoming renewal expiration date will be issued a license with the subsequent expiration date. For example, licenses issued between August 1, 2014 and November 30, 2014 will reflect a license expiration date of November 30, 2015. Licenses issued prior to August 1, 2014 will reflect an expiration date of November 30, 2014 and must renew in the upcoming renewal period.

License Renewal Information. All Colorado Speech-Language Pathologist licenses expire on November 30, 2014 and must be renewed to continue practicing.  They will then expire November 30 every year and must be renewed to continue practicing.
