NEW ELICENSE OHIO SYSTEM

Dear Certificate Holder:

The Ohio Board of Psychology has migrated to the state of Ohio’s new online application, license management, supervision management, and license renewal system.  The eLicense Ohio system operates in a secure web-based environment, and will allow you to take care of most Board business and payments online.  Please follow the steps below to create an account and review your profile information:

  • Navigate to the new e-License Home Page at https://elicense.ohio.gov.
  • Select the “Login/Create an Account” option.
  • Select the “I HAVE A LICENSE” button.

After successfully registering, you will be directed to your online user “Dashboard” page.  A “tile” will appear showing your license, license number, status and give you an “options” picklist.  From the “options” picklist you will be able to conduct all Board business, such as:


  • Address changes,
  • Certificate verification requests,
  • Duplicate card and wall certificate requests,
  • Biennial license renewal,
  • License reinstatements, and
  • Name change requests.

Should you have any questions regarding managing your account or during the setup of your account, please contact the Board at (614) 466-8808.  Alternatively, you are always welcome to email the Board at info@psy.ohio.gov.


Sincerely,


The Ohio Board of Psychology
