Paper Renewal
Select your license type below for a paper form you can fill out and mail in.
*Attention Mental Health Licensees: To renew online, you must FIRST complete the entire renewal process and pay for your highest level license - for most, this would be your Independent Mental Health Practitioner license. THEN log back in to the online renewal system and renew and pay for any other licenses or certificates you have. The active renewal fee is $50 for each additional credential. There is no fee for inactive status.
The Licensure Unit no longer mails wallet-size license cards. If you require a wallet-size license after renewing, you can now print your own from our website's License Lookup feature. On that site, when your name comes up in the search results, click it. You will then see a green button that says Generate Wallet Card. Click that button to view/print your license. Please allow up to 10 business days for your updated license information to be available on the License Lookup website.
For issues with renewal fee payments, please call 402-471-2115 or email

Licensees can place their licenses on inactive status at no charge, either online or by paper renewal form, prior to the license expiration date. Being on inactive status means that the licensee cannot perform licensed activity until the license is reinstated.
If you missed your renewal deadline, your license has expired. You cannot practice until it is reissued or reinstated. Licensees who practice after the expiration of their licenses will owe DHHS an administrative penalty of $10 per day up to $1,000, and/or other disciplinary action specific to their license types.
To reapply or request reinstatement of your license, go to the Professions and Occupations page, click on your license type, click on Applications, and complete the Application for License or Application for Reinstatement. Please note that we cannot provide same-day processing. Submit the form, any additional documentation required, and a check or money order for the fee to the Licensure Unit.
