Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP)
Who is eligible to take the EPPP Exam or Practice Exams:
In order to sit for the EPPP, individuals must first apply for licensure as a Psychologist to the licensing authority in the state, province or territory in which they wish to be licensed. The licensing authority reviews applicants’ credentials and determines if they meet the requirements set in the laws of the state or province.
Candidates who meet the requirements will be authorized by the licensing authority to take the EPPP. Once authorized, an email will be sent to the candidate with instructions on how to proceed.
If you believe you have been authorized but have not yet received an email, contact your licensing authority.
- Once the EPPP fees are paid, you must complete the EPPP within 90 days.
- Do not pay your exam fees unless you will be able to complete your exam within 90 days.
