Psychology Examination

EPPP Licensing Examination for Psychology 

PLEASE NOTE: To become licensed at the doctoral level in Michigan, an applicant must pass the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) with a score of at least 500. Applicants for a Master’s Limited License are required to pass the EPPP with a score of at least 450. 

In order to be eligible to take the EPPP, an individual must hold either a master’s educational limited (TLLP) or doctoral educational limited license OR have applied for and met all other requirements for a master’s limited or full psychologist license. 

If you are eligible to take the EPPP and are ready to test, please notify the Board of Psychology by e-mail at bplhelp@michigan.gov. In the e-mail, you must provide your name, mailing address, email address, phone number, and license number. After the Michigan Board notifies the testing company, Pearson VUE, that an individual is eligible, the individual will receive an e-mail from Pearson Vue that will provide information about how to activate an account with Pearson. An individual has 90 days to activate the account. There is no requirement to register to take the EPPP at the same time the Pearson Vue account is activated. Once an individual does register to take the EPPP, he/she will receive an e-mailed Authorization to Test (ATT) with instructions for scheduling the examination appointment. The EPPP must be scheduled within a 90-day time period that will be identified in the ATT.

After January 26, 2015, you may register to take the EPPP at http://www.asppb.net/?page=Signup.
