All post doctoral fellows must possess a Michigan license to begin the fellowship. This could either be a Masters level temporary limited license or a Level 10 Ph.D. limited license.

Should the candidate end internship in July or August prior to beginning the fellowship, they may need to apply for the Masters level temporary limited license.

However, once the Ph.D/Psy.D. degree is officially granted by their University, they will need to obtain a Ph.D. Level 10 limited license. This license will enable them to begin to accumulate hours for full licensure and to sit for the EPPP licensing exam.

Program Directors will decide which license to advise new fellows to obtain, based on ending of internship and knowledge of length of time at the Michigan licensing board for turn around of applications.

The application process can be lengthy. We encourage you to begin the process as early as possible once you are accepted to one of the fellowship programs. The application packet can be obtained from the Michigan Board of Psychology, which is the state office that grants limited and full license for psychologists.
