Inactive & Retired Status
To put your license on inactive or retired status you must submit the paper form (including the CC Activity Report) and fee by mail, and pass the online applicant jurisprudence exam. You will find the exam here. Your passing score will be reported to the Board.
Putting a license in the inactive status means that a licensee has chosen not to practice, but wishes to maintain licensure so that she/he may return to practice in the future.
- The Inactive status can be selected only at time of renewal, and requires the use of the paper renewal form.
- A licensee may remain in inactive status for no more than six years.
- An inactive licensee may return to active status at any time. If a licensee returns to active status at a time other than the regular renewal date, the licensee must pay a reactivation fee equal to the renewal fee.
- For more information about "going inactive," see §341.8 of the rules.
- Retired status may only be selected at the time of renewal, and requires the use of the paper Retired Status form.
- A licensee may remain in retired status indefinitely, but after one year in retired status, must take the national examination to return to active status.
- For more information about the retired status, see §341.9 of the rules.
