    (a) Applications for original licensure shall be made to the Department in writing on forms or electronically as prescribed by the Department and shall be accompanied by the appropriate documentation and the required fee, which shall not be refundable.

If the application has not been completed within 3 years, the application shall be denied, the fee shall be forfeited, and the applicant must reapply and meet the requirements in effect at the time of reapplication.
    (c) A license shall not be denied to an applicant because of the applicant's race, religion, creed, national origin, political beliefs or activities, age, sex, sexual orientation, or physical disability that does not affect a person's ability to practice with reasonable judgment, skill, or safety.
