65-6506.Application for licensure; expiration and renewal; fees; reinstatement of lapsed license; licensure by another jurisdiction; temporary license. (a) Any applicant for licensure shall submit an application to the secretary upon the forms prescribed and furnished by the secretary and shall pay appropriate fees as established by the secretary, including examination fees if required. All licenses shall expire after two years and may be renewed by submitting an application, showing proof of completing required continuing education and paying a renewal fee to be established by rule and regulation and collected by the secretary. The secretary may issue a license for a period of less than two years for the purpose of administratively adjusting renewals. In such case, the licensee shall be charged a prorated renewal fee based upon current renewal fee structure.

(b) At least 30 days before the expiration of the license, the secretary shall notify the licensee of the expiration by mail addressed to the licensee's last place of residence as noted upon the office records. If the licensee fails to submit an application and fee by the date of expiration of the license, the licensee shall be given a second notice that the license has expired and the license may only be renewed if the application, renewal fee, and late renewal fee are received by the secretary with the 30-day period following the date of expiration and, if both fees are not received within the 30-day period, the license shall be considered to have lapsed for failure to renew and shall be reissued only after the applicant has been reinstated under subsection (c). Temporary licenses may be renewed for one consecutive 12-month period upon payment of renewal fee and documentation of failure to complete requirements for which the temporary license was originally issued.

(c) A licensee who fails to renew as herein provided may be reinstated upon payment of the renewal fee and the reinstatement fee, and upon submitting evidence of satisfactory completion of any applicable continuing education requirements established by the secretary. The secretary shall adopt rules and regulations establishing appropriate continuing education requirements for reinstatement of persons whose licenses have lapsed for failure to renew.

(d) The secretary may issue a license to a person holding a valid license in another state if:

(1) The secretary receives from the issuing state or states documentation that the licensee is currently in good standing with no violations or sanctions pending or in effect;

(2) the applicant, pursuant to rules and regulations: (A) Meets current educational, clinical practicum, postgraduate professional experience and examination requirements; or (B) has received a masters degree awarded prior to January 1, 1993, with a major course of study in speech-language pathology or audiology, or both, and a supervised clinical practicum experience and has completed postgraduate professional experience and passed an examination in speech-language pathology or audiology, or both; and

(3) the applicant pays an endorsement and application fee pursuant to rules and regulations.

(e) The secretary may issue a temporary speech-language pathology or audiology license for a period of 12 months pursuant to rules and regulations.
