  • Physician Assistant licenses expires on July 1 of even-numbered years.
  • The physician assistant renewal fee is $50 if renewed on or before July 1. If renewed after July 1 a late fee of $50 will be due in addition to your renewal fee.
  • Physician assistants are required to maintain NCCPA certification in order to renew their license.

Renewal notices are sent approximately sixty (60) days prior to the expiration date. License holders with valid email addresses on file will be emailed the renewal notice. Those who do not have valid email addresses on file will be mailed the license renewal notice; this notice is mailed to the address of record with the board. The board has no way of knowing whether or not a notice reaches its destination; therefore, when a notice has been emailed to a valid email address or mailed , the duty of the board has been performed.

Online renewal is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for most license renewals. Online renewal takes only minutes and your renewal will be processed and available for verification the next business day.
