Kan. Admin. Regs. § 102-1-3b - Application for licensure based on reciprocity

Current through Register Vol. 40, No. 39, September 30, 2021

(a) Each individual who wishes to be licensed as a psychologist based on reciprocity, as provided by K.S.A. 74-5315 and amendments thereto, shall submit an application for licensure in accordance with the provisions of this regulation.
(b) Each applicant for licensure as a psychologist shall request the application forms for licensure by reciprocity from the board. Each applicant shall ensure that the application materials are submitted to the board as follows:
(1) The applicant shall submit the completed application form and shall submit payment in full of the application for a license fee, as provided in K.A.R. 102-1-13.
(2) The applicant shall forward to the licensing agency for the jurisdiction in which the applicant is currently licensed, certified, or registered as a psychologist at the doctoral level a form provided by the board on which the licensing agency is to provide the following documentation:
(A) Verification that the applicant currently holds a valid license, registration, or certification to practice psychology at the doctoral level that has been issued by the licensing agency;
(B) the date on which the applicant was initially licensed, registered, or certified by the licensing agency as a psychologist at the doctoral level and a complete history of each subsequent renewal, reinstatement, and lapse in licensure, registration, or certification. If an applicant is seeking licensure based on reciprocity under the provisions of paragraph (a)(2) of K.S.A. 74-5315 and amendments thereto, the applicant shall ensure that documentation covering the five continuous years of licensure, registration, or certification as a psychologist at the doctoral level that immediately precede the date of the application is submitted to the board by the licensing agency for each jurisdiction in which the applicant was licensed, registered, or certified during that five-year period;
(C) a complete history of any disciplinary action of a serious nature brought by the licensing agency against the applicant. For purposes of this regulation, "disciplinary action of a serious nature" means the revocation or suspension of a license, registration, or certification issued by the licensing board or the voluntary surrender of a license, registration, or certification in lieu of the completion of an investigation or final disciplinary action; and
(D) either verification that the standards in that jurisdiction for licensure, certification, or registration as a psychologist at the doctoral level are substantially equivalent to the standards in Kansas or verification that the applicant has earned a doctoral degree in psychology, the date on which the applicant earned the degree, and the name of the university or college granting the degree.

The completed form shall be returned to the board by the licensing agency and shall not be forwarded to the applicant.

(3) If the applicant is seeking licensure based on reciprocity under the provisions of paragraph (a)(2) of K.S.A. 74-5315, and amendments thereto, rather than on the basis that the standards for licensure, registration, or certification are substantially equivalent to the standards in Kansas for licensure as a psychologist at the doctoral level, the applicant shall ensure that following additional documentation is submitted:
(A) An attestation by the applicant that the applicant engaged in the professional practice of psychology at the doctoral level an average of at least 15 hours per week for nine months during each of the five years immediately preceding the date of application for licensure based on reciprocity; and
(B) if the licensing agency does not provide verification that the applicant holds a doctoral degree in psychology, an original transcript sent directly from the university or college granting the degree that identifies all applicable graduate coursework and the date on which the applicant was granted a doctoral degree in psychology.
