Appraiser Certification Program
Renewal of Certification
Please note: Renewal applications will not be accepted after March 31 of the following year. (For example, for a certificate that expires on Sept. 30, 2018, renewal applications will only be accepted up to March 31, 2019, for that renewal period.)
The 2018 renewal applications were mailed the first week in July and are due Aug. 17, 2018. In order to renew your certificate for state-certified general, state-certified residential, state-licensed and state-registered appraiser you must submit the completed renewal application and applicable renewal fees.

Administrative Rules of South Dakota Related to Certification Renewal
All South Dakota appraisal certificates, including those on inactive status, expire on September 30 of each year except for those issued after the first week of July. New licenses issued after the first week in July will not expire until Sept. 30 of the following year.
Renewal packets are mailed out the first week in July and must be thoroughly completed, notarized and returned to our office along with the applicable renewal fee no later than Aug. 17 of the current year.
Late renewals (after Oct. 1) must pay a late penalty fee of $25 for each month or fraction of a month that has passed since Oct. 1. (See Administrative Rule of South Dakota (ARSD) 20:14:10:04.)
Each odd numbered year, verification of completed continuing education must also be submitted with the renewal application and fee. (See our continuing education page.)
Inactive status certificates must complete the same renewal requirements as active except there is no continuing education required. Be sure to check the box for inactive status on the application and follow the guidance provided in the administrative rules.
Reciprocal appraisers must also complete the same renewal requirements as active appraisers except their continuing education requirement may be exempted. (See our continuing education page.)
A printed copy of the current statute (South Dakota Codified Law (SDCL) 36-21B) and Administrative Rules (ARSD 20:14) relating to appraisers and appraisals is available free of charge upon request by contacting our office.
