This will take you to the Application Portal page. You will have two options to either create a login, or use a “one-time” access to your renewal application. If you choose to create a login, your User ID will be your e-mail address on file with the Board, and you will need to create a NEW password.

If you choose to use the “one-time” access, you will enter your e-mail address on file with the Board. You will then receive a message containing a link to your renewal application.

All licensed architects must complete their renewal by December 31 to avoid late fees.

Architects paying by check should note that the application will not be considered complete until payment is received in the office. This means that your check must be received or postmarked by December 31, 2018. We will continue to accept Visa and Mastercard for online credit card payments.

At the end of the renewal process, you will receive an e-mail indicating that your license has been renewed which will contain a pdf of your updated license. Please be sure to print this for your records.

Reminder: All architects (both in-state and-out-of-state) are required to complete 12 CEHs of HSW in the calendar year prior to renewal in order to renew their individual Louisiana licenses. This means that you must have completed 12 CEH in HSW in calendar year 2017.

New Database System

We have launched a new database system which hopefully, you will find makes the renewal process easier. New functionalities of our database system include:

1. The ability to pay by credit card or check.

Previously, you could not process your renewal online if you wanted to pay by check or were responding no to any of the Moral Conduct questions.

2. The ability to update your Contact information.

You will now be able to update your contact information while completing your renewal application. We encourage you to review this information and provide any necessary updates.

3. Add more than one email address.

Another new feature of this system allows us to maintain more than one e-mail address for you.
