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

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.
