Filing online is required!

The Universal Licensing System (ULS), a consolidated system of online resources is equipped to handle the common filing tasks of licensees. Using ULS maintains your filing records securely in one place and allows you to make administrative updates online. If you are a new ULS user, you may first need to register with the FCC's Commission Registration System (CORES) to receive an FCC Registration Number (FRN).


Licensees may be required to perform standard filing tasks after obtaining a license. These tasks must be performed using the Universal Licensing System (ULS). Standard tasks are:

Changing Email/Mailing Address

Licensees are required to apply for timely modification of their licenses as necessary to show their correct mailing address, name, email address, club name, license trustee, or custodian name.

Checking Application Status

On the next business day following a successful submission of an application, you can check the status of your application in the Universal Licensing System.

The FCC offers licensees the opportunity to request a specific call for their primary station and for their club station.

Renewing a License

As of April 19, 2022, licensees have a fee to renew their license.

Licensees may file for renewal no more than 90 days, before their license expiration date. If your license expires, you may apply for renewal of the license for another term during a two-year filing grace period.

Obtaining Authorization

If an original license document or permit document is lost, mutilated or destroyed, a licensee may obtain a replacement by logging into their License Manager.
