How do I renew my license?

The renewal period is one year. Your license renewal date is your birthday. You must notify the department in writing of any address changes.
You are responsible to make a timely renewal whether or not you receive a renewal notice from the department.
If you fail to renew your license, your license is invalid. If your license is invalid, you are prohibited from offering and/or providing professional geologist services until your license is renewed or reinstated.
If you fail to pay your renewal fee within ninety days after your renewal date, you must pay the renewal fee plus a late fee equal to one year's renewal fee at the current rate.
If you fail to renew your license for a period of five years or more, you may be reinstated upon payment of the current year's renewal fee and a late fee equal to one year's renewal fee at the current rate. In addition to the payment of fees, you must submit the following:
(1) A signed statement that you are knowledgeable about the current laws and rules governing geologists in Washington state;
(2) A professional resume of your geologist activities during the delinquent period, including licensure in another jurisdiction, with sufficient detail to demonstrate to the board that you have maintained your professional geologist skills; and
(3) A detailed explanation of the circumstances surrounding the reason you allowed your license to expire.
