ONLINE RENEWALS ARE AVAILABLE (GREEN BUTTON TO RIGHT)


ONLINE APPLICATIONS AND ONLINE VERIFICATIONS (paid) ARE TEMPORARILY UNAVAILABLE


The Minnesota Board of Physical Therapy has a NEW ONLINE RENEWAL SYSTEM WHICH WILL REQUIRE YOU TO FIRST CREATE A NEW ACCOUNT AND THEN CREATE AN INDIVIDUAL USER NAME AND PASSWORD.  Click the “Renew License” button on the right, then click “Register to Access Site” to create your new login account.  Then make a secure payment through US Bank with a MasterCard, Visa or Discover credit card. This account will be used for future online activity, so maintain a copy of your login information.


Please use Google Chrome, Internet Explorer version 9+, or another modern browser.

Renewal reminder post cards have been mailed and the online renewal service has been activated.  All MN P.T. and P.T.A. licenses expire on December 31.  The annual renewal fee is $60 and the late fee is $20.  You are strongly encouraged to renew early online, allowing time for any technical difficulties which may occur.

For payment by check or money order you must submit a paper renewal form.  Please print a PT Renewal Form or a PTA Renewal Form from this website and mail it with your fees to the Board.  

If you are unable to renew on line or print a renewal form then you may request a paper renewal form by mailing the renewal notice post card to the Board.  Telephone, fax, and email requests will not be accepted.  Allow 1 week for delivery of the renewal form to a MN address and 2 weeks to an out-of-state address.   

Name changes at the time of license renewal require a paper renewal.  Name changes must be accompanied by a certified copy or notarized copy of the legal document specifying the name change.

You must have an active license to practice as a physical therapist or physical therapist assistant in Minnesota.  Practice under a lapsed or non-renewed credential is a basis for discipline under MS 148.75 (a) (18).  If your license renewal has not been approved by the close of the business on Wednesday, December 31, 2014, then any practice after December 31, 2014, will be looked at as practicing without a license until your license has been renewed for 2015.  The Board office will be closed Thursday, January 1, 2015.

License renewal status is available on this website by clicking on Verify a License.

If you do not intend to renew your MN PT license for 2015 then please notify the Board in writing.  Contact information is located at the bottom of this page.

2014 RULEMAKING

The Minnesota Board of Physical Therapy (“Board”) has initiated the rulemaking process to modify its current administrative rules (Minn.R.5601). This process was commenced by the Board’s publication of the “Request for Comments” in the Minnesota State Register on March 31, 2014. You may review the “Request for Comments” by clicking here: Request for Comments. You may review the Board’s proposed rule modifications by clicking here: Proposed Rules. New rule language is underscored. Language to be deleted is stricken through. Please note that these modifications to the Board’s rules are proposed only. The final rule language may be different. 

Should you have any questions, comments or concerns about the proposed modifications, or any of the Board’s other rules, please feel free to submit them in writing to the Board as indicated in the “Request for Comments”.

Please note that this will not be your final opportunity to comment on the proposed modifications. Once the final modifications are approved by the Board, it will publish a “Notice of Intent to Adopt Rules” in the Minnesota State Register. At that time, interested parties will have the opportunity to submit written comments, support or objections to the modifications, as well as request a public hearing. If the Board receives 25 or more written requests for a hearing, it will be held in the time and place indicated in the Notice of Intent to Adopt Rules.
