To obtain emeritus status, professional geologists whose licenses are subject to renewal and are not engaged in professional practice can elect "Emeritus Status" on their online or paper renewal form.  On the paper form, mark the box next to “Change to Emeritus Status” and return a $25 check with the paper renewal form to the Board.  If an in-person payment is preferred, please pay by either the exact cash or check, as Board staff cannot accept card payments or have the ability to make any change. 

Once approved for Emeritus status, such status does not expire or must be renewed.  Emeritus licensees may use the title of Professional Geologist Emeritus as appropriate.  Emeritus licensees are also eligible to receive Board publications. However, they are prohibited from practicing in Nebraska.
