Those who do not have valid email addresses on file will be mailed the license renewal notice; this notice is mailed to the address of record with the Board.

If you wish to renew your license to inactive status, you may renew online or by paper by selecting "Yes" when asked if you would like to put your license in inactive status. Maintaining inactive status requires you to continue to renew every 2 years and pay the renewal fee of $120. When renewing to inactive status, you are not required to complete continuing education. An inactive registered architect or landscape architect may not practice architecture or landscape architecture.
If your license is on inactive status and you wish to renew to active status, you may email your request to the Board at email@example.com. Please include your license number and copies of continuing education certificates verifying 24 hours taken in the previous 2 years. This status change should be made prior to completing your license renewal.
