    (A)file a renewal application through the online process on the Commission's website or on the applicable form approved by the Commission;

    (B)submit the appropriate fee required by §535.101 of this title;

    (C)comply with the fingerprinting requirements under the Act; and

     [(D)comply with the policies established by the Texas Education Code, §57.491 regarding default of a student loan; and]

    (D)[(E)] except as provided for in [by this] subsection (g) of this section, satisfy the continuing education requirements applicable to that license.

  (3)The Commission may request additional information be provided to the Commission in connection with an renewal application.

  (4)A license holder is required to provide information requested by the Commission not later than the 30 day after the date the commission requests the information. Failure to provide information is grounds for disciplinary action.

(b) - (g)(No change.)

(h)Denial of Renewal. The Commission may deny an application for renewal of a license if the license holder is in violation of the terms of a Commission order.

[(h)Student loan default. The Commission will advise a license holder in renewal notices and license application forms that default on a student loan guaranteed by an entity designated by the state of Texas may prevent a renewal of a license. Before the Commission disapproves a license renewal due to a default on a guaranteed student loan, a default on a repayment agreement, or a failure to enter a repayment agreement, the Commission will give notice and provide an opportunity for a hearing in accordance with the provisions of the Administrative Procedure Act, Texas Government Code, §§2001.001, et seq.]

(i)(No change.)

The agency certifies that legal counsel has reviewed the proposal and found it to be within the state agency's legal authority to adopt.
