Information About Renewal Applications for Funeral Directors

To renew an active license, you will need to provide information about your Continuing Education (CE). For information on CE requirements, refer to Section 9.0 of the Board's Rules and Regulations. See also list of Approved Continuing Education.

Note: Funeral Director Limited licenses do not have a CE requirement for renewal.

Information About Renewal Applications for Funeral Establishments

You will need to provide information about the mailing and location addresses, managing funeral director, and ownership of the establishment.

How to Renew a Lapsed License

If you do not renew your license before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to practice while your license is lapsed.

You may renew an expired license for a period of one year after the expiration date by submitting a renewal application online and paying a late fee. However, if the license has been lapsed for more than one year, you must reapply as a new applicant or by reciprocity.
