Putting a license in the inactive status means that a licensee has chosen not to practice, but wishes to maintain licensure so that she/he may return to practice in the future.
- The Inactive status can be selected only at time of renewal, and requires the use of the paper License Renewal.
- A licensee may remain in inactive status for no more than six years.
- An inactive licensee may return to active status at any time. If a licensee returns to active status at time of renewal, the fee is the same as the renewal fee. If the licensee returns to active status before the next renewal date, the licensee must pay a reactivation fee equal to the renewal fee.
- For more information about “going inactive,” see §341.8 of the rules.
