Please note that an application fee only extends an initial license to the next renewal date. Initial licenses do vary in duration. It is the responsibility of all licensees to renew their license before expiration. Failure to renew shall result in automatic forfeiture or suspension of the license by statute. Licenses which have forfeited are not automatically entitled to renew.
To begin the application process, please send an email to SDBMOE@state.sd.us requesting to apply. The email request should include your full legal name and the professional licensure type you wish to apply for.
