Time to Renew Your Illinois License


License renewal for Illinois architects has begun and must be completed by November 30, 2018, when all Illinois licenses expire. Go to the Architects page of the Illinois Department of Professional & Financial Regulation to complete your renewal.

Renewal requires that architects have earned 24 hours of continuing education credit during the previous 24 months and that at least 16 of those hours are in public protection subjects (health, safety and welfare, or HSW). AIA members can review their continuing education transcript to verify they have met the State’s biennial requirement (as well as AIA's annual requirement).
