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 online scheduling portal, Certemy, that an individual is eligible, the individual will receive an e-mail from Certemy that will provide information about how to activate an account with their office. There is no requirement to register to take the EPPP at the same time the Certemy account is activated, however eligibility lasts for 5 years.
