Notice Regarding Extension of Licenses Pursuant 

to Executive Order 20-19

The Governor has issued an Executive Order requiring all State licensing authorities to extend the renewal deadline for licenses that expire during the State of Emergency Disaster Declaration, if the licenses were in good standing on March 12, 2020. The extension lasts until 90 days after the State of Disaster Emergency ends. Licenses that were current and valid on March 12, 2020 will remain valid until the extension expires. The Executive Order also requires licensing authorities to extend the deadlines for continuing education requirements until 90 days after the end of the State of Disaster Emergency.  See https://governor.kansas.gov/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/EO-20-19-Executed.pdf.

Also, per the Governor’s Executive Order, the State Board of Technical Professions will not apply any late, delinquent, penalty, or expiration fees to renewals that meet the requirements above. Fees and penalties will be applied for licenses covered by the Order that are not renewed within the extension period, for licenses that expire after the State of Emergency Disaster ends and are not renewed within the standard deadlines, and for licenses that expired before March 12, 2020 and were not renewed within the standard deadlines.
