Renewal fees have increased since the last Occupational Therapist renewal. As you may know, the renewal fee is evaluated each year and set to meet the budgetary needs of the program; however, it is difficult to predict if costs of regulation will decrease or increase in the future. Renewal fees help offset the operational expenses of the program and are an integral part of our commitment to work diligently to provide consumer protection.
If renewed on or before January 31, 2013:
The Active Occupational Therapist renewal fee is: $51
If renewed on or after February 1, 2013, a $15 delinquency charge is applied and the totals are:
The Active Occupational Therapist renewal fee is: $66
After March 31, 2013, your license will be expired and you must reinstate.
All fees are Non-Refundable. The Division of Professions and Occupations cannot and will not take payment information over the phone. We will not request credit card numbers or checking account numbers via telephone. You will only be able to pay for your renewal online, in person at our office or by mail with the necessary renewal packet. To protect your information DO NOT provide any credit card or checking account numbers over the phone to an unknown source.
IMPORTANT: You must confirm that payment was received for your renewal to be complete. You will need to check your account for a new expiration date in the "Current Information" tab. Your license is not renewed until payment is complete. You must reinstate if you exceed the 60 day grace period.
Licensure is a privilege, not a right. In order to obtain and retain the privilege, you must be completely honest. The Division conducts audits of its licensing database against several criminal and national disciplinary databases, which allows the Division to track subsequent criminal conduct and disciplinary actions after initial licensure.
An arrest, disciplinary action or subsequent criminal conviction does not mean an automatic revocation of your license. The board or program will look at the facts surrounding the criminal conduct and disciplinary action to determine whether you are still fit for licensure. Your license will not necessarily be revoked if you have been disciplined, arrested, charged or convicted, but your license will most likely be revoked if you fail to disclose it.
The Division of Professions and Occupations provides wall certificates for most license types in the Division. To place an online order click here.
