Military Service Members, Veterans, and Spouses

The Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists honors and supports our military personnel and veterans returning to civilian life and wishes to thank them for the sacrifices that they and their families have made on behalf of our nation. The skills that men and women acquire in the Armed Forces are valuable. These skills may benefit an individual that decides to pursue a career in psychology.

In accordance with Section 55.009, Occupations Code, the Board provides notice that it has adopted rules that:

  • Assist active duty, former and retired military personnel to receive the credit they earned for military training and education;
  • Extend renewal dates for military personnel, veterans, and spouses;
  • Recognize prior licensure in this state;
  • Recognize substantially equivalent licensure from other jurisdictions; and
  • Waive application and examination fees for military personnel, veterans, and spouses.
Current and prospective licensees are encouraged to review Board rules 463.30, 471.6, 473.1, and 473.2 to review the various options available to military personnel, veterans, and spouses.

The Sunset Review of theTexas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists

The Texas State Board of Examiners of Psychologists is currently under Sunset review.  The psychology board underwent Sunset review in the 2016–2017 biennium, but the agency’s Sunset legislation, which contained the Sunset Commission’s statutory recommendations for the psychology board, did not pass during the 85th Regular Session.  Instead, during the 85th Legislature, First Called Session, the Legislature simply continued the psychology board for two years, and placed the agency under Sunset review again.

Through the Sunset review, every Texan has the opportunity to provide input on the mission and operations of the psychology board.  The current Sunset review of the psychology board will focus on the issues and recommendations identified during the previous review.  If you would like to share any concerns or ideas about those issues and recommendations, please send an email to the address below, use the comment form on the Sunset Commission website, or contact Robert Romig of the Sunset staff.  Comments are preferred by October 27, 2017, so they can be fully considered by the Commission staff.
