What do I do if I have a name change?

In order for the Board to change the name in which your LD or LN was issued, you are REQUIRED to submit one of the following: 
1) a marriage certificate specifying the name change following marriage;
2) a divorce or dissolution of marriage decree specifying the name change, or;
3) other court order specifying the name change.

Merely copy the document and fax, scan and email, or mail the copy to the Board office. There is no fee for this service. Your name will be updated in the database. During renewals, the board staff will update your renewal certificate with the name change. It is best to send in the name change documents first and then renew online once the name change has occurred in the database. The name change occurs on the website the following day for the public licensee search.

If you do not intend to renew your MN LD or LN please notify the Board in writing by US Mail or email at

To avoid late fees, your renewal must be postmarked on or before November 30, 2014 or online transactions must be fully completed by midnight, November 30, 2014.

To help you prepare for the end of the continuing education cycle please review the table   on the Continuing Education page, under the Licensees tab above, that shows the amount of CEU's required by license number that will have to be submitted by November 30, 2015.
