A. If the applicant satisfies all of the requirements for licensure pursuant to this chapter, the board shall issue an active license and shall prorate the fee for issuing that license for the period remaining until the last day of the birth month of the applicant of the next odd-numbered year or even-numbered year pursuant to subsection B, paragraph 1 or 2 of this section.
B. Except as provided in section 32-4301, a person holding an active or an inactive license shall apply to renew the license on or before the last day of the birth month of the licensee every other year as follows:
1. In each odd-numbered year, if the licensee holds an odd-numbered license.
2. In each even-numbered year, if the licensee holds an even-numbered license.
C. The application shall include any applicable renewal fee. Except as provided in section 32-4301 or 41-1092.11, a license expires if the licensee fails to renew the license on or before the last day of the licensee's birth month of the licensee's renewal year pursuant to subsection B of this section. A licensee may reinstate an expired license by paying a reinstatement fee within two months after the last day of the licensee's birth month in that year. Beginning two months after the last day of the licensee's birth month during the licensee's renewal year until the last day of the licensee's birth month the following year, a licensee may reinstate the license by paying a reinstatement fee and providing proof of competency and qualifications to the board. This proof may include continuing education, an oral examination, a written examination or an interview with the board. A licensee whose license is not reinstated within a year after the last day of the licensee's birth month of the licensee's renewal year may reapply for licensure as prescribed by this chapter. A notice to renew is fully effective by mailing or electronically providing the notice to the licensee's last known address of record or last known email address of record in the board's file. Notice is complete at the time of deposit in the mail or when the email is sent.
D. A person renewing a license shall attach to the completed renewal form a report of disciplinary actions or restrictions placed against the license by another state licensing or disciplinary board or disciplinary actions or sanctions imposed by a state or national psychology ethics committee or health care institution. The report shall include the name and address of the sanctioning agency or health care institution, the nature of the action taken and a general statement of the charges leading to the action.
E. A person who renews an active license to practice psychology in this state shall satisfy a continuing education requirement designed to provide the necessary understanding of current developments, skills, procedures or treatment related to the practice of psychology in the amount and during the period the board prescribes. The board shall prescribe documentation requirements.
F. On request of an active licensee, the board may cancel the license if the licensee is not presently under investigation by the board and the board has not initiated any disciplinary proceeding against the licensee.
