Louisiana Board of Architects
Annual Licensure Renewal

The licensure period for individual architects runs from January 1 through December 31 each year. A renewal notice will be sent to the e-mail address on file with the board office each November. This notice will include links to both the paper renewal application and online renewal system. Notices regarding licensure status are sent only as a courtesy of the board. The ultimate responsibility for licensure renewal rests with the licensed professional.

All renewals must be either received in the board office by the close of business on the December 31 or be postmarked by that date.

Staff will only process paper renewal applications that contain the completed renewal form, annual continuing education affidavit attesting to compliance with continuing education requirements, and the appropriate required renewal fee.

A registrant who does not properly renew his or her license may not practice after the expiration of the license. A registrant who continues to practice using an expired license will be subject to such disciplinary action as the board deems appropriate.
