LICENSURE FOR INDIVIDUALS WITH MILITARY TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE

Since the military requires licensure as a psychologist in any jurisdiction, the following requirements are based upon the military requirements.
A member of the military who is seeking to become licensed as a psychologist in North Carolina shall meet the following criteria:
(1) Holds a current license to practice psychology from another jurisdiction and that jurisdiction's requirements for licensure are substantially equivalent to or exceed the requirements for licensure in North Carolina.
(2) Has engaged in the active practice of the psychology for at least two of the five years preceding the date of the application.
(3) Has not committed any act in any jurisdiction that would have constituted grounds for denial, suspension, or revocation of a license to practice psychology in this State at the time the act was committed, as set forth in NC Gen Stat § 90-270.15.
(4) Pays any fees required by the North Carolina Psychology Board in order to be licensed, as set forth in NC Gen Stat § 90-270.18(b) and 21 NCAC 54 .1605.
No later than 30 days following the applicant making application, the NC Psychology Board shall notify the applicant when the applicant's education, licensure and/or experience does not satisfy the requirements for licensure and shall specify the criteria or requirements that the board determined that the applicant failed to meet and the basis for that determination.
A military spouse who is seeking to become licensed as a psychologist in North Carolina shall meet the following criteria:
(1) Holds a current license to practice psychology from another jurisdiction, and that jurisdiction's requirements for licensure are substantially equivalent to or exceed the requirements for licensure in North Carolina.
(2) Can demonstrate competency in the practice of psychology by having engaged in the active practice of psychology for at least two of the five years preceding the date of the application under this section.
(3) Has not committed any act in any jurisdiction that would have constituted grounds for denial, suspension, or revocation of a license to practice psychology in North Carolina at the time the act was committed, as set forth in N C Gen. Stat. § 90-270.15.
(4) Is in good standing and has not been disciplined by the agency which regulates the practice of psychology in any state in which he/she is currently licensed.
(5) Pays any fees required by the North Carolina Psychology Board in order to be licensed, as set forth in NC Gen Stat § 90-270.18(b) and 21 NCAC 54 .1605.
All relevant experience of a military service member in the discharge of official duties or, for a military spouse, all relevant experience, including full-time and part-time experience, regardless of whether in a paid or volunteer capacity, shall be credited in the calculation of years of practice in psychology.
