Renew Your License - Maryland Board of Architects


Please read ALL requirements and instructions before proceeding with the application process.

It's really easy! All you need to do is go to the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation's website and follow the instructions. Our system was designed to make it possible for you to apply for or renew your license or permit quickly and easily - without complicated instructions.


  1. For best results, we recommend using the most recent version to access the electronic licensing programs. You can update your browser at no additional cost by visiting our browser information section.
  2. Please have the data card with your registration number in hand.
  3. When you go online, you will create a password by identifying yourself with certain personal information. Then, with this password and your registration number, you will be able to apply for a license, renew, or update your registration record at your convenience with a password unique and more memorable to you.
  4. Employers need to have their Workers Compensation Policy Number and Insurance Company's name at hand to complete the renewal forms.
  5. Firms may not renew until the firm's responsible licensee has renewed.
  6. Firms may not cover all employees' renewal fees with one charge transaction, but may must do so with individual charges.
  7. When you receive your credit card statement, the charge for renewing on-line will be shown as "MD Dept. of Licensing."
  8. We are collecting your e-mail addresses for Board use in order to facilitate our communication with you.
