Attention all Illinois Professional Engineers, the due date for PE license renewal has been extended from November 30, 2021 to February 28, 2022. Please see the official notification at this link.
October 21, 2021 | Variance | Extending November 30, 2021 Renewal Deadline for Professional Engineers to February 28, 2022
Effective November 1, 2021, registration with CTS is no longer required for new or re-applying candidates registering for NCEES examinations in Illinois. Exam approval will be given by NCEES or the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation (Department) based on your Baccalaureate degree. If you have questions regarding this change, please contact the Department at 1-800-560-6420.
The Department’s renewal system recently underwent a complete overhaul and as a result, the renewals for each profession are not “opening” at the same time as in previous renewal cycles. The Professional Engineer renewal window should be opening soon. Once that occurs, a courtesy renewal notification should be sent to the email address of record for all active licensees with instructions on how to renew the license. The Department thanks you in advance for your patience and understanding.
