Chiropractic Physician Renewal


This page outlines the “what, when and how” to successfully complete the License Renewal process.

Your license grants you the privilege to practice chiropractic in the State of North Carolina. A failure to complete your renewal within the required timeframe may cause you to lose that privilege.  Each licensee is responsible for completing the annual renewal requirements as outlined in N.C.G.S. 90-155 and Rule 10. 0204.

To renew your license, you must do the following:

  • Pay your renewal fee of $300
  • Complete 18-hours of approved Continuing Education
  • Complete your Annual Renewal Form online

All requirements must be completed and received in the Board Office by 5 P.M, on the first Tuesday after the first Monday in January. (NCGS 90-155).

Your license will automatically be cancelled if the Board office has not received your renewal requirements by 5 P.M on the 30th day following the first Tuesday following the first Monday in January. (NCGS 90-155).

If your license lapses, you will not be authorized to practice chiropractic in North Carolina until you are reinstated. The *Reinstatement Process is summarized at the end of this page.

Renewal Tips:

  • Pay your renewal fee early and online through the website.You DO NOT have to wait until the end of the year to make your payment, submit CE completion certificates, and your Annual Renewal Form.
  • Regularly monitor your progress towards meeting you CE requirement using www.CEBroker. Submit CE completion certificates to CEBroker.
  • Always retain a copy of your CE completion certificates. While many CE providers state they will submit the certificates on your behalf, make sure you have a copy in case the provider doesn’t complete this process. You are ultimately responsible for providing proof of completion certificates.
  • Make sure you keep your email address current with the Board. This is our main method of communicating with you so make sure you notify us about an email address change as soon as possible but no longer than 30-days per Statute. Also, please designate the Board email address as a trusted sender so that Board emails don’t get sent to junk or spam folders.
  • It is important to keep in mind when you need proof of your renewed license to meet recertification filings or deadlinesThe earlier you need your renewed license, the earlier you should complete all requirements of the renewal process to enable you to print your renewed license.
