Hawaii Speech-Language Pathologist Licensure Renewal Procedure

Regardless of when it was issued each SLP license expires on December 31st of odd-numbered years. Renewals are completed online once the portal opens up in November. Postcards are mailed out to remind you that the expiration date is approaching. If your renewal is not received on time you are considered unlicensed and cannot practice.

You can also request a hard copy renewal application 8 weeks prior to the license expiration date. Call (808) 586-3000 to contact the Professional and Vocational Licensing (PVL) Branch or pick up a form at:

King Kalakaua Building
335 Merchant St.
Rm. 301
Honolulu, Hawaii 96813

Mail the application to the address indicated on the form along with the renewal fee of $176. Online renewals take three to five business days to process while hard copies can take 14-21 business days. Once the license has been renewed you can print your pocket ID from your online account. To check the status of the renewal visit here.

Hawaii does not require SLPs to obtain any continuing education (CE) credits to maintain licensure. However, it is still a good idea to take courses, especially if you plan to move to another state and practice. The majority of states have CE requirements SLPs must meet for licensure.

Fortunately, the Hawaii Speech-Language-Hearing Association (HSHA) offers ASHA-approved CE activities for anyone interested in learning new developments made in the field.
