How do I report my compliance and pay my late for the 2019-2021 Reporting Period by the September 30, 2021 grace period deadline?


For the 2019-2021 reporting period, your grace period completion and reporting deadline is 11:59 p.m. CDT on September 30, 2021. September 30, 2021 is also the deadline for you to submit your late fee this reporting period.
  • If you timely reported to the MCLE Board  that you had "not yet complied" with your MCLE requirements by the June 30, 2021 completion deadline, then the late fee you owe is $100.00.
  • If you did not submit a report to the MCLE Board by the July 31, 2021 reporting deadline, then the late fee you owe is $250.00.
