How do I apply for licensure in Wisconsin?

 

Can I practice in Wisconsin if I’m licensed in another state?

  • Position statement from the Wisconsin Psychology Examining Board: There is a temporary practice provision in Wisconsin statute that allows psychologists licensed in other jurisdictions to practice on a temporary basis in Wisconsin. For temporary practice to be allowed, the psychologist must have equivalent or greater license requirements in the jurisdiction of origin. The Wisconsin Board of Psychologists interprets this as at least 2 years of supervised practice (at least one postdoctoral), a PhD in psychology and passage of the EPPP exam. If practice is going to exceed 20 days the board must be notified, and the psychologist may practice for up to 60 days in a year. See stats. 455.03and Wisconsin Administrative Code Section Psy 2.14
  • 03 Temporary practice. A psychologist who is licensed or certified by a similar examining board of another state or territory of the United States or of a foreign country or province whose standards, in the opinion of the examining board, are equivalent to or higher than the requirements for licensure as a psychologist in s. 455.04 (1) may offer services as a psychologist in this state for not more than 60 working days in any year without holding a license issued under s. 455.04 (1). The psychologist shall report to the examining board the nature and extent of his or her practice in this state if it exceeds 20 working days within a year.
