The Kentucky State Board of Cosmetology has recently released important information regarding license renewal, restoration, and examination scheduling. As a language model, I will re-elaborate on each point to provide clarity and understanding for those affected by these updates.
Firstly, due to a security paper shortage, license renewals were printed late this year. The Board has assured individuals that renewals were printed late last week and will be mailed soon. However, if you do not receive your license by October 1st, 2022, the Board requests that you email your name, license number, and last 4 SS# to [email protected] to request an account review.
Secondly, there were significant errors in the print batch run last week. The Board is currently working as quickly as possible to correct the misalignment and send out a new copy. They ask for individuals to be patient and understanding. However, if you do not receive your reprint by October 15th, 2022, please email [email protected] for assistance.
Thirdly, if your license has expired for more than one year in 2021 or earlier, you must visit www.kbc.ky.gov to print a restoration application. You will need to supply all required support documents and a money order to restore your license. If you expired in 2017 or before, you will need to email [email protected] for exam eligibility releases. All licenses require a theory and practical exam to reinstate if expired over 5 years.
Fourthly, if your license has expired for one year or less in 2022, please visit the home page at www.kbc.ky.gov and use the “restore a license” link located at the top of the page.
Fifthly, if you are ready to schedule an exam and have been graduated for one month or more, please email [email protected] with the following verification information: Full Name, Address, Phone #, Email Address, Last 4 SS#, and Date of Birth.
Sixthly, if you have been graduated for less than one month, the Board asks for patience and understanding as processing occurs. They also recommend checking your spam folder for emails from PSI.
Lastly, if you have registration confirmation from PSI for exams but are having trouble scheduling, please contact [email protected] for assistance. All other questions will receive a response within 24-48 business hours.
In summary, the Kentucky State Board of Cosmetology has provided important updates regarding license renewal, restoration, and examination scheduling. It is important to follow the guidelines and instructions provided to ensure compliance and avoid any potential issues or delays. If you have any questions or concerns, do not hesitate to contact the Board for assistance.
