                          Notice - RE: Active Renewal-Pending Status

A number of licenses issued by the Georgia Board of Examiners of Psychologists (“Board”) expire as of December 31, 2016. If a licensee has submitted a timely and sufficient renewal application by December 31, 2016, his/her license may be placed on “active-renewal pending” status. 

“Active-renewal pending” status does not mean that the license has lapsed, is inactive, is deficient, or invalid.  Rather, “active-renewal pending” status merely reflects that the licensee has submitted a timely and sufficient renewal application. 

Under O.C.G.A.§50-13-18(b), the license of a licensee who has made a timely and sufficient renewal application does not expire until the Board has reviewed and made a determination on the application, even if the date of that determination is after the expiration date.  A licensee should save the receipt generated after submission of a timely and sufficient application as additional proof of renewal during the period in which the application is reviewed.
