Help Center / When I am approved for an upgrade to my license, does that also automatically renew my license for 2 years?

No. A license in the Clinical Laboratory Personnel profession is renewed on an even year cycle. If your upgrade is approved at any time during the 2 year biennium, your license will still be up for renewal on August 31 of each even year.

There are two steps that you must take when upgrading your license.  The first is to apply and be approved for an upgrade.  The second is to timely renew your license. When you renew, the upgrade will be noted on your license.
