New York Speech-Language Pathologist License Renewal

Strictly speaking, in New York, a non-provisional license is forever. However, to practice, you must register every three years – New York SLP Online Renewal.

The due date is the end of your birth month. About five months ahead of your renewal date, you will get a letter that invites you to fill out the renewal application. As of 2023, the total cost was $229, including a $50 fee to evaluate your continuing education credits, and $179 for the renewal fee.

Continuing Education

Like most licensed professionals, SLP’s must take continuing education classes and engage in profession-specific learning. The state refers to this as evidence of continuing competence, and you’ll need 30 clock hours of it every three years. One of the most common ways to obtain these credits is by attending seminars or taking classes. You can also do many other activities, such as publishing an academic paper, teaching a seminar, or even self-study.

There’s a detailed description of approved activities on the board’s website. You’ll also find the form used to certify your continuing competence on the application materials page.
