Extensions: BACE Educators can apply for a one-time, six-month extension. Extension fee is $75 and is only applicable if filed for prior to date of recertification date, and is in addition to the recertification fee due at the time of recertification (no later than June 30 of the year after your recertification was originally due).
If you do not file for an extension in the year your certification expires, your recertification will be subject to the "Lapsed Certification" fee of $150 which is paid in addition to the Recertification cost of $75, and that of annual BACE membership at $30/year.
You may choose to pay the recertification fee at this time, and have it not be due at the time of your recertification submission. Only do this if you are certain that you will have your recertification requirements no later than June 30 of the year after your recertification was originally due.
