Nebraska Board of Geologists


The online renewal system for licenses expiring December 31, 2023, is now available.

If you are attempting to renew a license that expired on December 31, 2022, you will need to call our office and request a paper renewal form. If you do not renew by December 31, 2023, and you wish to practice in Nebraska in the future, you will be required to submit a new license application and fee, along with meeting the licensing requirements in place at that time.

Licenses are valid for one calendar year regardless of when they are issued throughout the year. Notices are sent to licensees no later than thirty (30) days prior to expiration. The renewal must be received by the Board no later than December 31st to avoid accruing late fees.

An expired license may be renewed with late fees for up to one year after expiration. After such time, a licensee will be required to submit an application for reinstatement if the licensee wishes to practice geology again in this State.

If you choose Emeritus status, you will no longer be authorized to practice in Nebraska, but may use the honorary title of Emeritus Professional Geologist. This is a one-time, lifetime fee.

Online Renewals

You may renew through our online portal using your Visa, MasterCard, Discover card, or electronic check.

  • You will be asked to enter your license number and be given the opportunity to update your contact information if needed.
  • Follow the screen instructions to complete your renewal.
  • If the message, “Sorry, a payment cannot be made at this time,” appears, an online renewal payment has already been made against your license and you will not be able to proceed. Please contact the Board office to confirm receipt of payment.
  • You will receive an email confirming your payment has been processed. The Board will receive a record of your payment the next business day after processing and mail out a receipt with your new expiration.

Paper Renewals

If you wish to pay by check, contact the Board office to request a paper renewal form. Please include your name and license number in the request. Once received, simply complete the form and return it with the appropriate fee by the deadline.
