The following information will help if your MCLE reporting period ended and you still need additional credits. If you still have any questions about your MCLE compliance, please contact the MCLE Department at (208) 334-4500.
You can receive an extension from January 1 until March 1 to complete your MCLE requirements by paying the $100 MCLE extension fee. You can pay the fee online, here, paying online with your online licensing, or by submitting a check to the ISB with your paper licensing forms. The final licensing deadline is March 1.
If you have applications pending for courses taken before December 31, you do not have to pay for an extension. The extension request and fee are required only if you take courses in January/February to complete the previous reporting period’s requirements. Until the courses are approved, keep your MCLE certificate of compliance. You may submit the rest of your licensing without it. Simply include a note stating you are waiting for credit approval and will submit the certificate of compliance later. Send the certificate when all the courses have been approved.
Note: If you request an MCLE extension, the rest of your licensing must still be physically received in the Idaho State Bar office by February 1 licensing deadline to avoid the licensing late fee. Do not submit your MCLE certificate of compliance until you completed the requirements. You may submit the rest of your licensing without it and send the certificate when you are done.
All courses on your certificate of compliance must be approved for mandatory continuing legal education (MCLE) credit by the Idaho State Bar. If you are not sure whether or not a course has been approved, use the Approved Courses Search page to check the list of approved courses. Approval in another state does not necessarily mean the course is approved for CLE credit in Idaho.
If the course you attended is not approved, apply for accreditation using our online form.
