Licensure

How to obtain a Michigan license to practice psychology

All postdoctoral fellows must possess a Michigan license to begin the fellowship. This should be a Doctoral Educational Limited License but can be a Master’s Educational Limited License (TLLP) if needed due to delays in degree conferment.

After the PhD/PsyD degree is officially granted by a university, fellows must obtain a Doctoral Educational Limited License. This license enables to sit for the EPPP licensing exam and to begin to accumulate clinical hours for full licensure.

The Program Directors will assist new fellows in determining which license to obtain.

The application process can take several weeks. (See licensing and application forms for more information.) We strongly encourage incoming fellows to begin the application process as soon as they are accepted into the fellowship program.

The application packet may be obtained from the Michigan Board of Psychology, which is the state office that grants limited and full licenses for psychologists.
