Renewing Active Landscape Architect Licenses

To renew an active license, you will need to provide information about your continuing education (CE) and seal. For information on CE requirements, see Section 7.0 of the Board's Rules and Regulations.

Renewing Inactive Landscape Architect Licenses

If you are not practicing in Delaware, you may submit a written request to place your license on inactive status. You are not allowed to practice in Delaware while your license is on inactive status.

To maintain your license in inactive status, you must renew it. No CE is required.

If you wish to resume practicing in Delaware, you must reactivate your license. See Section 8.0 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.

Renewing Certificates of Authorization

In addition to completing the online renewal application, you must submit a Verification of Landscape Architect in Charge Information form to update information on the management of the business. The form will be enclosed with the renewal notice and also available online.

Renewing Expired Licenses

If you do not renew your license or certificate before the expiration date, your license will expire. It is illegal to practice while your Landscape Architect license is expired. It is also illegal to offer landscape architecture services in Delaware while your Certificate of Authorization is expired.

To resume practicing or offering landscape architecture services in Delaware, you may submit a late renewal application for up to 60 days after the expiration date. You must pay a late fee in addition to the renewal fee. Even though you can file a late renewal application, do not resume practicing or offering services until the active license/certificate is actually renewed. The late period is not a "grace period."

If you fail to renew by the end of the 60-day period, your license or certificate will terminate. To resume practicing landscape architecture or to resume offering landscape architecture services in Delaware, you must reapply for licensure.
