Please READ the following information before attempting to renew!

To renew your license, we strongly recommend you use a Chrome Browser, especially if you are having difficulty uploading CE certificates.

If you have lost your login credentials: 
  • Go to the portal
  • Click on the “log in” button
  • Click on “forgot password.”
  • Instructions will be emailed to you. 
If you get a message that states:  “Email is not found” or if you don’t receive the instructions, contact the office so we can confirm or update your email.

Upload CEs: 
Veterinarians must upload proof of 18 CEs in order to renew for FY 2024. RVTs whose license expires this year must upload 24 CEs to renew for FY 2024.  All required CEs may be done online this year. CE's must be uploaded for FY2024!

You will be able to see what you uploaded in the past but you cannot alter what you have already submitted. You may upload more CEs than you need if you have excess CEs but you must designate what year you are using them for by selecting the “Fiscal Year Where Credit Applies.”  

If you have been licensed in Maryland for fewer than 12 months, you will not have to upload CEs. The system should allow you to bypass this step. If it doesn’t, contact the office so we can verify your original licensing date.

If you notice that you have made an error with your CEs after submitting your renewal application, don't panic. Contact the office so we can correct the error.

Personal Info. When you log in, you will be able to update your personal contact information at top right where it says “profile.” 

Employment info. You will not be able to update your employment information on the portal. If you see it is incorrect, renew your registration and then inform us of the change by clicking here​.  (Check the online look up now to see if you’re listed appropriately. )

State regulations require you to keep your home and employment information up-to-date, so please make sure the information we have is correct.

Hospital Licenses. Veterinarians who are also licensing hospitals will be able to renew both their individual license and their hospital license from the portal. You should see both available for renewal when you log in. Local business representatives for owners who have several facilities in the state should also be able to renew all of the facilities after logging in. If you don’t see all your facilities listed and available for renewal, contact the office.
