Step 3: My Original Application Was Rejected
This section will help you understand the process if your application is rejected.
If my application is not acceptable.
- Your application will be returned to you if it is insufficient or incomplete. You must provide any missing information, make corrections, and resubmit your application within 90 days from the date it was returned. If you do not resubmit your application to the CSLB within 90 days, it becomes void. If the application becomes void, you cannot reinstate it, and would need to submit a new application and processing fee(s) if you wish to pursue a license.
IMPORTANT - The application fee is a processing fee and is earned as soon as the application is received at the CSLB. Whether or not the application is approved the fee is not refundable.
