Please note: Licensees may only apply for Inactive Status before their license expires on March 31st of the current calendar year. You may not apply for Inactive Status after your license has expired or lapsed.
You may wish to go on Inactive Status if you will not be practicing Dietetics/Nutrition for a period of time, but plan to return to the profession at some point in the future. While on Inactive Status, you will not be subject to the yearly renewal fees, and when you want to reactivate, you will only pay the current renewal fee. You will be required, however, to maintain your registration with CDR and/or the necessary CEU’s, dependant on your category of licensure, while you are inactive.
If you are sure you will no longer be working as a licensed Dietitian/Nutritionist in North Carolina, it may be more appropriate for you to relinquish your license. If you choose to take this action please complete the Relinquish Form and enclose your original certificate. If you do not inform us of your status, and you do not renew your license, your license will be considered Lapsed, and you will be subject to our Lapsed License Procedure.
