Dear Licensees & Providers:

The Bureau of Professional Licensing (BPL) in the Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA) is excited to launch a new licensing platform that will make it easier and more efficient to obtain, renew, and modify licenses.

The new system – Michigan Professional Licensing User System (MiPLUS) – launched yesterday, May 6, and will enhance accessibility by providing an improved interface for licensees and consumers and reduce delays from mailings.

Yesterday, the following licensed professions transferred to MiPLUS:

· Medicine (Doctors)
·Osteopathic Physicians
· Physician Assistants
· Midwifery
· Podiatry
· Behavioral Analysts  
· Veterinarian
· Pharmacy
· Optometry
· Dentistry
· Cosmetology
· Barbers  

To help licensees interact and engage with the new platform, the following resources are now available at

  • Walk-through videos on registering for an account, applying for your first license, modifying your license, and renewing your license.
  • Licensing guides for each profession.

Licensees can register for their MiPLUS account and manage their license online by clicking on the appropriate profession to create a user account.

The launch of MiPLUS is part of a larger, bolder and more comprehensive technology strategy at LARA. We are prioritizing a review of all our information technology platforms to determine opportunities to improve both transparency and efficiency of our systems and resources. The launch of MiPLUS is part of our ongoing commitment to improve our processes and platforms for licensees through technological improvements

For information and resources on how the launch of MiPLUS will impact the licensing and renewal process, please review the FAQ, visit, call us at 517-241-0199, or email us at
