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

Each applicant who submits an application for licensure as a master's level psychologist or a clinical psychotherapist shall be required to qualify for licensure by examination. Each applicant submitting an application for licensure shall take a nationally administered, standardized written examination approved by the board.

(a)
(1) The pass score for licensure as a master's level psychologist shall be not less than 60 percent correctly answered items.
(2) The pass score for licensure as a clinical psychotherapist shall be not less than 70 percent correctly answered items.
(b) Upon receiving board notification of the applicant's educational eligibility to be seated for the licensure examination, the applicant shall submit the examination registration forms and fee in the manner and within any deadlines established by the board.
(c) For each examination registration or seating opportunity the applicant attempts, the applicant shall submit by board-established deadlines the required registration form and a separate examination fee made payable to the examination service.
(d) Each applicant who fails a required examination for which the applicant has been registered shall submit, by board-established deadlines, the required registration form and the examination fee made payable to the examination service for each subsequent examination for which the applicant registers. If an applicant fails to sit for an examination for which the applicant has been registered, the applicant may register for a subsequent examination by submitting the required registration form within board-established deadlines.
(e) The written examination shall be waived by the board if the applicant has passed, at a level equal to or greater than the applicable pass score indicated above in paragraph (a)(1) or (2), a nationally administered, standardized written examination deemed by the board to be substantially equivalent to the examination approved by the board.
(f) An applicant shall not be authorized to register for the examination or qualify for a waiver of the examination until the applicant has fulfilled all educational requirements and has satisfied the board that the applicant merits the public trust.
