Arizona Speech-Language Pathologist License Renewal Process

Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) licenses are valid for two years and renewed through the Department’s online portal. Instructions for navigating the portal can be found in the Online Renewal Quick Reference Guide.

Before applying for a license renewal, you must register on the website. You’ll be prompted to create a username and password before selecting the appropriate role. After 48 hours a notification is emailed informing you that the registration has been accepted. Log back into your by going to the Online Provider Services homepage.

You’ll see the renewal terms and link to ‘Submit Online Renewal’. Once you accept the terms and conditions you can confirm that the information is correct and make edits as needed. Complete the process by paying the $200 renewal fee and keep a copy of your order receipt.

You cannot renew the license more than 90 days before the expiration date. When you’re ready to renew, have all of the documents you need readily available so you can easily enter the required information without any time interruptions. Keep the following items nearby:

  • Certificates of completion for continuing education (CE) courses
  • Employer information
  • A valid MasterCard, VISA, AMEX, or Discover card, or electronic check

The session expires if you spend more than two hours on the page. If you encounter any difficulties using the portal, contact the Bureau of Special licensing at (602) 364-2079.

A minimum of 20 CE hours every two years is required to maintain your SLP license. The courses, workshops, seminars, or other activities you engage with should be connected to clinical services and evaluation.

If you are renewing a temporary license, you cannot do it through the online portal. Download the paper application and mail it to:

Bureau of Special Licensing
150 North 18th Avenue, Suite 410

  • A signed Statement of Citizenship or completed Alien Status form
  • Copy of citizenship or document authorizing your legal presence
  • Clinical fellowship sponsor agreement
  • $100 license fee
  • Court records or explanation of disciplinary action, if applicable
