Psychology Licensure Universal System

The Louisiana Board of Psychologist Examiners [LSBEP] has established a new more efficient, streamlined, mobile and revised application process for our applicants. We have partnered with the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) to process our applications through theirPsychology Licensure Universal System (PLUS) program.

As a result, the application process will provide you with a permanent record of your application and supporting documents that will be retrievable from ASPPB for the rest of your professional career. In addition, participation is available to you in the Certificate of Professional Qualification in Psychology program (CPQ) with ASPPB if you desire to apply for it. CPQ is a designation provided by ASPPB that will provide you mobility to be licensed in any jurisdiction that participates in the program without having to reapply for a license should you desire to practice in that jurisdiction. The pilot phase begins May 11, 2015.
