(a)  License registration shall be renewed on or before the first day in July each year.  No less than 30 days prior to the renewal date, the Board shall send a renewal reminder to each individual licensee.  The licensee shall complete the current license renewal documentation required by the Board and found in the licensee's secure online profile.  The licensee shall submit to the Board the completed license renewal documentation, along with the annual license renewal fee.  The Board shall not accept incomplete renewal documentation. If the accompanying charge, draft, or check in the amount of the renewal fee is dishonored by the landscape architect's drawee bank for any reason, the Board shall suspend the license until the renewal fee is paid.  When the annual renewal has been completed according to the provisions of G.S. 89A-5 and Rule .0307 of this Section, the Board Executive shall approve renewal of the license for the current license year. 

(b)  If the Board has not received the annual renewal fee and completed renewal documentation, on or before the first day of July each year the license shall expire and be delinquent.  The license may be renewed at any time within one year of being deemed delinquent, upon the return of the completed renewal documentation, as found in the licensee's secure online profile, the annual renewal fee and the late renewal fee, along with demonstration of compliance with Rule .0307 of this Section.  After one year from the date of delinquency the license may no longer be renewed, but the licensee shall seek reinstatement.  Reinstatement shall occur according to the provisions of G.S. 89A-5 and Rule .0301 of this Section.

(c)  Renewal fees are non-refundable.
