SPECIAL PRECAUTIONARY MEASURES IMPLEMENTED DUE TO COVID-19

Based upon the latest guidelines from government agencies and health officials regarding the COVID-19 virus, and in keeping with our commitment to the health and safety of our employees and the general public, effective March 23, 2020 and until further notice, the following preventative measures will be taken by the Board and its staff.

No visitors will be allowed in the Board's office and agency staff will begin rotating between working from home and in the office.  Additionally, in an effort to manage continuity of operations under this rotating schedule, all telephone calls will be directed to voicemail.  When leaving a voice message, you must provide your name, phone number and email address, so that staff can respond to your call.  Failure to include this information may hinder the agency's ability to respond in a timely manner.

Callers are strongly encouraged to email staff with any questions they may have, in lieu of leaving a voicemail.  Questions submitted by email must contain the name and phone number for the individual.  Failure to include this information may hinder the agency's ability to respond in a timely manner.  Staff email addresses are available via the staff directory.

If you need to verify a license, you may send an email to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

If you need to verify whether any disciplinary action has been taken against a licensee, you will need to conduct a public search via the Board's online licensing system.  All disciplinary actions taken against licensees are available through this system.  The public search function can be accessed by clicking here and then clicking on the "Public Search" link.

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.
