License: Clinical Psychologist (Ph.D.)
License/Certification Website: Each state has its own licensing requirements and board. Visit the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards webpage (External Site) for information about licensure.
Additional Information: National – Completion of an American Psychological Association (APA)-accredited doctoral degree in clinical psychology is only one of several requirements for licensure, as specified by individual states. Other requirements include supervised postdoctoral clinical hours, satisfactory performance on a national licensing exam (Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology), etc. Our APA accredited program is designed to meet licensure for the vast majority of states; however, given the local variation in requirements, we do not assure that graduates meet requirements for licensure in all states, territories, or international locations. In line with other APA-accredited doctoral programs in clinical psychology, we have included the following statement on our departmental web page: Our program adheres to APA accreditation standards and prepares students for entry into the profession of Clinical Psychology. Given the varied and changing requirements across jurisdictions, we cannot assure, nor is it our responsibility, that graduates will meet all requirements for licensure in all states, territories, or international locations. Doctoral trainees in this program are encouraged to become familiar with licensing laws applicable to their career plans and discuss their curricular plan with their major professor and/or the Director of Clinical Training (DCT) as needed. A compilation of licensure requirements, organized by jurisdictions, is available here (External PDF) and updated annually.
