Ohio Speech-Language Pathologist License Renewal Procedure

To keep your SLP license active, you must renew it every two years and complete 20 hours of continuing education. However, you will not be required to fulfill continuing education hours during your initial renewal period.

You will receive a renewal application and a mailed notice from the Ohio Speech Language Pathology Board 30 days before the renewal deadline. While you will not need to provide evidence of your continuing education credits, you must sign a form affirming that you have completed the necessary number of hours.

The acceptable continuing education credits include academic coursework, conventions, conferences, webinars, and seminars. The only requirement from the Ohio board is that a state licensing board or the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association approve the courses. You can explore ASHA’s continuing education requirements to get started. Additionally, the Ohio board offers periodic continuing education opportunities.

To renew your Speech-Language Pathology or Audiology license in Ohio, you must submit a renewal application and pay $120 to the Ohio Board. In addition, if you submit your renewal application after the due date, you’ll need to pay a late fee of $120, making the total fee $240.
