A marriage and family therapist duly licensed to practice marriage and family therapy in the state under Minnesota Statutes, chapter 148B, who has reached the age of 62 and is retired from the active practice of marriage and family therapy, may apply to the board for emeritus status:
by indicating on the licensee's renewal form or by petitioning the board in writing;
by indicating the licensee is not the subject of current disciplinary action resulting in the suspension, revocation, qualification, condition, or restriction to practice marriage and family therapy; and
by paying the onetime emeritus fee.
A licensee who has emeritus status shall not engage in marriage and family therapy practice or practice as a mental health professional as defined in Minnesota Statutes, sections 245.462, subdivision 18, and 245.4871, subdivision 27.
Continuing education requirements are not applicable to emeritus status.
In the exceptional case that a marriage and family therapist granted an emeritus license should wish to resume practice, the board shall reactivate the license according to the procedure in part 5300.0300 except that the only fee required shall be the reinstatement fee specified by the board, and the current annual renewal fee.
If a licensee was granted emeritus license status more than five years ago, the license may be reactivated only as specified in part 5300.0300, subpart 3.
