Inactive Status

Inactive status may be granted to licensees who have made a request in writing to the Board.

(1) To reactivate a license from inactive status to active or semi-active status, the licensee shall request in writing and report professional and continuing education activities sufficient to maintain professional competence, which must at a minimum meet the basic requirements for continuing education, as described in OAR 858-040-0015, within the 24 month period immediately preceding the date of request. The residual licensure fee and continuing education requirements from the date of reinstatement to the end of the renewal period shall be calculated on a prorated basis.

(2) Reactivation Request. If the written request to reactivate a licensee from inactive status to active or semi-active status occurs within five years the Board may, at its discretion, reactivate the license.

(3) If the Board determines that the licensee has not engaged in professional and continuing education activities sufficient to maintain professional competence, or if the written request to reactivate the license is not received within five years, the licensee must re-take the Oregon jurisprudence examination and obtain a passing score.

(4) If the inactive licensee does not pass the Oregon jurisprudence examination, the Board may require the submission of a study plan designed to correct deficiencies in the licensee’s examination performance and/or require that the licensee establish a Board approved consultation relationship as described in OAR 858-010-0036, the duration of which may be specified by the Board.

(5) The Board may reactivate the license upon receipt of documentation that the proposed study plan and/or period of consultation has been successfully completed and the deficiencies rectified, or at its discretion, may require the re-take and successful passing of the Oregon jurisprudence examination.
