Licensing Information

License Application & Instructions

Effective immediately Due to statutory requirements regarding processing times for application fees, the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency will no longer accept more than ten (10) fees per individual check for the application or renewal of a genetic counselor license with the Medical Licensing Board of Indiana.

If a check is received with more than ten (10) fees per check, it may result in the return of your check along with the applications or renewals to your program for correction.  Further delays in processing time, as a result of more than ten (10) fees per check, may also lead to potential late fees. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your partnership as we continue to work together to issue licenses as quickly and efficiently as possible. 

If you have any questions regarding this matter, please email pla3@pla.in.gov.
