Renew Your License

License renewals are valid for a period of two years. In October of each biennium year, renewal notifications are sent to licensees. Renewal forms, along with applicable fees, must be submitted no later than December 31. 

Renew Online

Note: Online renewal is now available for licensees with last names beginning with letters A through K. If you prefer not to renew online, please contact our staff for a paper renewal form. 

Audit Assistance!

If you receive an audit notice after you submit your renewal application, your license will not be renewed until your audit is complete. For tips on how to successfully complete an audit, read the The Successful CE Audit article in our newsletter. To submit your records, please email two PDFs: one with your logs and the other with your attendance verifications in the same order as they appear on the log. Forward your audit documentation to nbea.office@nebraska.gov. If you have questions, you can email or call (402) 471-2021.

Licensees with last names beginning with A through K will have their license expire in odd-numbered years (ex: 2017, 2019). Those with last names beginning with letters L through Z will have their license expire at the end of each even-numbered year (ex: 2016, 2018).

How to Renew a License

  • If you requested a paper renewal form, complete and make any changes on the form before December 31 and mail it to the Nebraska Board of Engineers and Architects with the applicable fee.
  • To renew your license online, click here. You may also elect to obtain emeritus status ($25 fee).
  • A Renewal Card and/or receipt information can be printed after renewing online. If you are renewing by paper form, a renewal card will be mailed once your payment has been received and if you have not been selected for an audit.
  • A license may be renewed within one year of the date of expiration with an additional late payment penalty
    (Architect Fee Schedule / Engineer Fee Schedule).
  • If you are relinquishing your license and wish to obtain emeritus status, mark the "Change to Emeritus Status" box on the form and enclose $25. If approved by the Board, you will receive Board publications but will no longer be licensed to practice.
