Important Facts About Renewing Your License in 2020

2020 is a renewal year for professional engineering licenses! This year, the deadline to renew your PE license in New Jersey is April 30, 2020. Make sure you’re up to date on this year’s important facts for renewing: 

1. Renewal applications were mailed out mid-February

Renewal applications are NOT available online. Make sure you’ve received your application in the mail! If not, please contact the New Jersey state board here.

2. The renewal fee is $80

Your renewal fee must be paid when you send in your application. 

3. The renewal grace period is May 1 – May 30, 2020

If you submit your application in the grace period, you will be required to pay a late fee of $50, bringing the total cost to renew to $130.

4. You must complete all requirements to renew your license

To be eligible to renew your PE license, you must complete a minimum of 24 professional development hours. Of those hours, you must have a minimum of two hours or a maximum of eight hours completed in ethics. You can complete as many credits as you want online and some excess professional development hours may carry over to the following renewal period.

5. New Jersey allows extra PDHs to be carried over to the next renewal period

If you’ve completed more than 24 PDHs in the last two years, you’re eligible to roll over up to 12 PDHs to the next renewal period! You can be proactive and continue to go to continuing education events and purchase courses to get ahead in the next renewal period. See upcoming CE events and PDH opportunities here
