LPC RENEWAL DEADLINE JUNE 30, 2020
Renewal application fee $170.00
(payment made online with completion of application)
Dear Licensed Professional Counselors (and reinstatement applicants):

As a friendly reminder, it's time to renew your LPC license . All applications must be submitted online by June 30th, 2020. Please "LOGIN" at www.lpcboard.org in the upper right corner of the homepage screen. Once you have logged in to your online account your dashboard will state "AUDIT" if your license was selected for board staff review. We encourage you not to wait until the final weeks to submit your online application as this may delay the process. If you have not created your online account, you will need to do so at this time. For technical assistance or support please call 225-414-4431 or email support@lpcboard.zendesk.com .

All licensees are required to submit Continuing Education Hours (CEHs). Please enter the CE information and upload the supporting documentation to your dashboard before you complete the LPC application renewal form (the application can be found under FORMS on your dashboard). If you have questions on how you should record your CEHs please review Ch.7 of the Board Rules at https://www.lpcboard.org/rules .

Please note, all CEHs that were intended to be "live" or "in-person" should be recorded as such. The board will accept all CEHs online for the 2020 LPC renewal period, but they must be recorded to match board rules in place previous to the Covid-19 health emergency. Otherwise, the system will not recognize your completion of continuing education requirements.

Renewal Applicants are NOT required to submit fingerprint criminal background checks.

Teletherapy CEHs are NOT required this renewal period. Please DO NOT check the box that you are "Providing Teletherapy" unless you have submitted your training and updated DOP AND received approval from board staff via email that it has been received and approved.

Please plan for a 10 business day processing time for AUDITED renewals. For this reason, we highly encourage you to submit your renewal application as early in the renewal season as possible. 

You may not practice with your current license after June 30th--even if you have submitted your renewal materials on or prior to the deadline. If you submit your renewal application materials after the June 30th deadline, your license will become lapsed and you will be automatically audited and assessed a $60 late fee  in order to reinstate your license. As a reminder, you may not practice with a lapsed license.


Sincerely,

LPC Board of Examiners

 
Please Note: If you have a new work address, phone number, or any other applicable changes, please remember to upload an updated Declaration of Practices and Procedures statement to your online account. Failure to do so could result in a fine or possible disciplinary action.
