Reinstatement of License
ND licenses to practice occupational therapy expire on June 30 of the even numbered years, if not renewed. Once the license has expired, it is illegal to practice occupational therapy without a current license.
An expired licensee has 3 years from date of expiration to renew the license.
To reinstate the license, the following must be submitted:
- A renewal application form – Complete the Renewal Form 2018 to reinstate your license.
- The renewal license fee - $150 for OT or $110 for OTA plus the $100 late renewal fee. A check or money order should be payable to NDBOTP. The online renewal system is no longer active once the expiration date has passed, so the Board cannot accept credit card payments for this.
- Verification of a minimum of 20 hours of continued competency earned within the past 24 months preceding the date the renewal is received by the Board office. Proper verification includes copies of completion certificates or a list signed by the supervisor.
- Completion of the Jurisprudence exam - The Self-Assessment/Jurisprudence Exam requires passing score of 80% (4 wrong or less).
If a licensee wishes to renew more than 3 years after the date of expiration, a retake of the NBCOT exam may be required unless currently licensed in another state with similar requirements.
Remember, it is against the law to practice occupational therapy in the State of North Dakota, if not currently licensed!
