Helpful Hints

Is the online renewal application secure?

Kansas.gov has dealt in online government transactions since 1991.  Since our inception, we have handled millions of dollars worth of e-government transactions.  We utilize Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol for Internet transaction security.  This SSL protocol allows Kansas.gov to deliver server authentication, data encryption and message integrity; this means that all the information in the transaction is protected from capture by a third party trying to do harm.  Every step of the process, from the initial submission to the final settlement, has been built with the most advaced yet user-friendly security features available.

Why is there a fee charged to utilize the on-line renewal service?

Kansas.gov is a self-supporting network - no tax dollars are used to run the network.  Currently, the network contains over 100,000 pages of information and dozens of free services, all designed to help the public to interact more efficiently and easily with their state government.  We offer businesses and individuals an alternative way to access information and to perform transactions with the state in a more convenient and cost effective way.  A large majority of the information found on the network is free - this is possible due to the funds we receive from the few fee services such as this application.

Can I get an extension?

Extensions are not granted on renewal dates. 

If you do not renew your license before the expiration date but have completed ALL the required continuing education PRIOR to the expiration date you may still renew with payment of an additional $50.00 late fee as long as the materials and fee are post-marked within 30 days following the license expiration date. 

If you do not renew your license before the expiration date and either have not completed all the CE prior to the expiration date or it is after the 30 days following the license expiration date, your license must be reinstated.  Licensees can either visit the website at www.kdheks.gov/hoc or contact Brenda Nesbitt at 785-296-0061 for reinstatement requirements.
