Dear Nonresident Psychologists:
Governor Mike DeWine declared an end to Ohio's state of emergency on June 18, 2021, thereby reverting the Board to its pre-COVID rules. The number of practice days had been extended to 90 days, but that extension is no longer in effect. We have returned to the standard rule, which allows psychologists to apply for permission to practice in Ohio on no more than 30 days per year.
To apply for nonresident permission to practice into Ohio without an Ohio license, please click on the following link, https://elicense.ohio.gov. Once you have created your account, you will then be directed to a page on which you will choose "APPLY FOR A NEW LICENSE." When provided with the option of choosing a Board, please select "Psychology Board," then select the "Non-resident Temporary Permit" option under "Select a License." Finally, under "Application Type" select "General Application." You will then confirm your eligibility to apply for temporary permission to practice in the state of Ohio, based upon an active license from another U.S. or Canadian jurisdiction. Upon saving and continuing the eligibility questions, you will proceed through the application documenting your personal information, background information, answer questions and attestation before submitting your application. Upon submitting your application you will be unable to make any changes directly to your application, so please be sure to review all information prior to submitting.
After submitting your application you will be directed to a secure payment site to process your payment for your Non-resident Temporary Permit application. Following payment of your application, you will receive email communication from the Board and a receipt.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Ohio Board of Psychology
