Mount Saint Mary’s University PsyD in Clinical Psychology graduates are eligible to sit for licensure as a Psychologist in California. The Board of Psychology of California is the licensing authority for California and requires an exam on the laws and regulations for practice of psychology in California, as well as the national EPPP (Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology). Licenses in other states are granted by the licensing authority in those individual states and those licensing boards might require an additional exam on laws and regulations specific to that state, as well as additional education requirements. Prior to enrollment, prospective students must review the Psychology Doctorate professional licensure webpage to determine whether this program meets the educational requirements in a specific state. MSMU would like to help applicants and students navigate the licensure process. Contact the Director of the PsyD Program at email@example.com. Students may also find the contact information and licensure requirements for the licensing authority in California and other jurisdictions by visiting the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) website.
