A Message from Bureau of Professional Licensing Director Cheryl Wykoff Pezon:
The Bureau of Professional Licensing (BPL) in the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is in the process modernizing its licensing platform and processes to make it more efficient to obtain, renew, and modify licenses. The new licensing platform for your profession is expected to go live in May 2019.

The new platform will modernize the licensing process for new applications and renewals by moving it online to reduce delays from mailing. MiPlus will also provide an improved interface for consumers to file and track complaints against licensees.
All professional licensees will be required to register with MiPlus and apply for a new license or renew their current license using this new online platform. The new platform will make the application and renewal process more efficient for both licensees and the department.
Specifically, the new system will allow licensees to:
- Apply online and track every step of their application in real-time.
- Upload documents and edit information electronically.
- Receive electronic notification on exam requirements and licensure completion.
- Receive an electronic copy of their license to print.
In preparation for this transition, LARA will provide detailed instructions on how to register, apply for a new your license, how to renew your license, and modifying an existing license; including instructional videos and resources and services offered by the new platform.
We appreciate your cooperation as we go through this change in our licensing process in order to better serve you. Our goal is to make the transition as simple and efficient as possible.
