License Biennial Ends Aug. 31st — Check Your Credit Transcript!

Jun 7, 2023 | ANJC News & Updates

UPDATE (7/7/23):
The Board voted on May 16, 2023, to allow licensees to complete the 30 required continuing education credits via distance learning continuing education coursework until the end of the renewal period, which is August 31, 2023.
UPDATE (6/23/23):
Renewal letters were inadvertently mailed before the Division of Consumer Affairs was able to update their website. The website should be operational on July 1st.

All chiropractic physicians in New Jersey have through August 31, 2023 to complete their Continuing Education requirements.

With just a few months to go, now is the time to check your transcripts to ensure you have met the CEU requirements. All ANJC-sponsored credits are listed in your ANJC profile under the Credit Tracker tab. Other than newly licensed DCs, every license holder must complete 30 hours from September 1, 2021 – August 31, 2023.

The ANJC hosts live webinars throughout the summer and has a full catalog of recorded programming, including each 2023 ANJC Annual Conference presentation. Visit the ANJC Catalog for all recorded and upcoming learning opportunities.

Information regarding Continuing Education requirements can be found on the New Jersey State Board of Chiropractic Examiners website:
