What forms should I fill out in the application? What about the supplement?
You must complete the entire General
Application and the supplement for your
discipline OR a Reciprocal Application. Failure to complete the entire application or supplement will
necessarily delay the processing of your application.
Can I come to
your office and have someone review my application? Why not?
No. If you follow the directions, read
the application and go through the checklist before you submit your
application, you are ready to submit your application. The credentialing
committee makes all decisions regarding whether an application meets
requirements. Board staff cannot advise you regarding how the committee
will act on your application.
If I am
licensed in one discipline, can you use forms for my current application
from a previous application?
The Board can copy the transcript from
one file for a second application. All other required forms and
supplemental documentation must be submitted with the new application.
credentials need to be verified?
Any state licensure, certification or
registration in any occupation or profession in Arizona or any other state
or country, other than those issued by this Board, must be verified on the
form provided in the application. Failure to disclose all licenses,
certifications or registrations currently or ever held may result in denial
of your application.
Please be aware that there may be a fee
associated with a verification. You should contact the credentialing entity
first to make sure you submit any fee required for a written verification.
Why do I have
to send the verification form to the licensing agency when a verification
can be printed from the web?
Because web verifications don’t
generally address disciplinary issues.
What can be
used from an old application?
The Board will only accept licensure
If you have been certified by this
Board in the past and have either 1) an active license or 2) a certification
that has expired or was never granted, the transcript may be able to be
taken from the other file. All other documents need to be completed and
submitted with the new application.
Why do I have
to get course descriptions for the year and term I took the course? What if
the college doesn’t have any catalogs?
The credentialing committee requires
course descriptions to judge the content of the courses you took for your
degree, so the descriptions must be for the actual course you took. All
accredited colleges and universities keep the course catalogs for every year
that they were accredited. You can contact your school’s library reference
section and request that they locate the correct catalog, copy the pages you
need and send them to you.
How long does
it take to process an application? (Board Rule
There is no way to accurately predict
how long it will take to process your application. The administrative
review usually takes 30 days IF the file is complete when submitted.
Missing information will necessarily delay the processing of your
application. Each credentialing committee meets monthly and can recommend a
file to the Board for licensure, deny a file or request additional
information from the applicant. Final approval is issued by the Board,
which also meets once a month. You will be notified in writing of each step
in the process.
Can I withdraw
my application and get my fee refunded?
No. All fees are non-refundable. Once
you submit an application, it cannot be withdrawn.
