Minnesota Speech-Language Pathologist License Renewal Procedure

License renewals are completed on a biennial schedule. Sixty days before the license expiration date, a renewal notice is sent to the mailing address on file with the Board. Your renewal application will be included with the notice, and the application must be returned to the Board by the indicated due date.

If renewing a temporary license for a CFY or doctoral externship, the process needs to start 30 days before its expiration date. Submit the following items to the Board:

  • Completed application packet
  • Appropriate renewal fee ($75 for 9 months; $100 for 12 months; $150 for 18 months)

Mail the application packet to:

Minnesota Department of Health
Health Occupations Program
Atttn: SLP/Aud Licensing
P.O. Box 64882
St. Paul, MN 55164-0882

If you’re using a courier service send the documents to:

Minnesota Department of Health
Health Occupations Program
Attn: SLP/Aud Licensing
85 East Seventh Place Ste. 220
St. Paul, MN 55101

Renewing your full, permanent license online will cost $200 every two years and require 30 hours of continuing education (CE). Find approved courses, workshops, seminars, conferences, and other eligible activities on ASHA’s and the Minnesota Speech-Language-Hearing Association’s (MSHA) website.

Use the CE Reporting Form to record your hours, and keep them on hand for at least four years. The Board can ask for them at any time and you don’t want to be caught without them as the result can be a revocation of licensure.
