LICENSE RENEWAL NOTICE

 

ENGINEER/LAND SURVEYOR/GEOLOGIST LICENSE RENEWAL

***If you have already renewed your license, please disregard this message***

HOW TO RENEW

Your Engineer/Land Surveyor/Geologist license must be renewed by September 30, 2015. To serve you in the most efficient manner, it is recommended that you visit the renewal website: https://www.mylicense.state.pa.us and complete your renewal online. Detailed directions are provided and you may pay your renewal fee using your debit or credit card via secure payment. Not all electronic devices may be used to renew your license [see the section "Acceptable Devices" on page 2 of this notice]. Regardless of whether you use a pc or a laptop, it is required that you use the most recent version of Windows Explorer or Firefox.

RENEWAL PERIOD

The renewal period begins July 1, 2015 and ends September 30, 2015. Failure to renew by September 30, 2015 may subject your license to fines and/or penalties.

NAME AND ADDRESS CHANGES

If you have an address change, you should do that online during the renewal process. If you have a name change, you MUST submit a copy of a legal document verifying the name change within 15 days of renewing online. You may submit your name change document to the address at the top of this page or send a clear/legible scan of it via email to: st-engineer@pa.gov. In the subject line of your email, type "Online Renewal Name Change" and include your license number.

LEGAL QUESTIONS

You are required to answer five legal questions, which are direct "Yes" or "No" questions. Failure to answer all or any of these questions will result in a delay to the renewal of your license. NOTE: Do not call the Board Office for advice on answering these legal questions, because Board staff is unable to provide such advice. "Yes" answers require submission of verifying legal documents to the Board Office.

RECEIVE YOUR LICENSE

After you renew your license online, you will receive your license in approximately seven to ten business days in most cases. Do not consider your license renewed until you receive it in the mail.

 

HOW TO RENEW ONLINE

ACCEPTABLE WEB BROWSER

The "web browser" is the program you use to access the internet. The renewal website will only work with the following web browsers: Internet Explorer or Firefox. Please do not use Safari or Google Chrome.

SEARCH ENGINES / INTERNET SEARCHES

Websites such as Google, Yahoo Search, Bing and others will not allow you to reach our renewal website. Please enter the website address, as provided in step one below, directly in the address bar of your browser.

ACCEPTABLE DEVICES

The MyLicense renewal website only works by using a PC or a laptop; it will NOT work when you use a smart phone, tablet PC or ‘phablet’.

Instructions:

1. In the address bar of your web browser, type: https://www.mylicense.state.pa.us.

2. Choose your license type from the many types of licenses that are due for renewal. Under Current License Renewals; Professional Engineers, Professional Geologists and Professional Land Surveyors link.

3. If you have never used the online renewal, you must create your own User ID and Password. The renewal website will guide you through this process. You must have your wallet card to create your User ID and Password, because a unique registration code is on the wallet card which ‘unlocks’ this process for you. If you lost your wallet card, please email the Board at st-engineer@pa.gov and in the subject line, type the words "NEED REGISTRATION CODE". Don’t forget to provide your license number so staff can respond with your registration code. You must also have a valid email address to receive communication from the Board, including your license renewal payment receipt.

4. If you have renewed online before, and you remember the User ID and Password you created, you may login using them. If you forgot your password, but you remember your User ID, you will simply create a new User ID and Password by re-registering. You must have your registration code on your wallet card to do this.

5. Each step in the online renewal process is listed on the left side of your screen. For example, you will see "Demographics" and next to it, a small box. To get to the Demographics step, you must click on the word "Demographics", not the small box. When the step is completed, a gray check mark will be in the box for each completed item. You must complete each step to complete the online renewal and receive your license.

6. If you have a name change, please remember that the online renewal process WILL NOT BE COMPLETE AND A LICENSE WILL NOT BE ISSUED TO YOU UNTIL THE VERIFYING LEGAL DOCUMENT(S) ARE SUBMITTED TO THE BOARD OFFICE AND PROCESSED.

7. If you answer "Yes" to one of the Legal Questions, please remember that the online renewal process WILL NOT BE COMPLETE AND A LICENSE WILL NOT BE ISSUED TO YOU UNTIL THE VERIFYING LEGAL DOCUMENTS ARE SUBMITTED TO THE BOARD OFFICE AND REVIEWED.

8. The final step in the renewal process is to Pay Fees and Submit. You will be required to provide credit or debit card information. Please note that our payment processes are secure and you may use them with confidence. NOTE: DO NOT PRESS "SUBMIT" MORE THAN ONCE! Doing so may result in multiple charges against your credit or debit card!

9. When you have finished, a receipt for payment will be emailed to you.
