OAR 833-020-0011


Application for licensure as a professional counselor and marriage and family therapist must be submitted to the Board and be on forms provided by the Board.


Application for licensure must include gender, date of birth, social security number, practice and residence addresses, email address, similar licenses held in other states, and history of professional discipline, litigation, and criminal involvement and be accompanied by:


The non-refundable application fee;


Official transcript sent directly to the Board from the college or university and supporting documentation as necessary showing education requirements have been met;


Documentation to prove experience requirements have been met or request for registration as an intern with a proposed plan to obtain required experience;


Verification that approved examination has been passed, or state examination is being requested;


Proposed professional disclosure statement for review and approval;


Criminal history information as specified in OAR 833-120-0021 (Procedural Requirements); and


Other clarifying information requested by the Board.


Applicants will be allowed one year from Board receipt of an application to file a completed application which documents that the applicant meets the educational requirements and experience qualifications (if applicable) for licensure.


Failure to withdraw the application or complete the process within the allowed time will result in closure of the file. An incomplete application includes but is not limited to an application in which:


Required information or original signatures are not provided;


Required forms are not submitted; or


No fee or an insufficient fee is received.


The Board retains the right to extend the one year period to complete application for good cause.


Applicants who submit complete documentation but are not approved for registration, examination, or licensure will be notified in writing that the application is being denied and state the reason(s) for denial.


To be reconsidered for licensure, applicants who failed to become licensed, who were refused licensure, who withdrew from consideration, or interns who have allowed their registration to expire will be required to file a new application, fee, and resubmit all documentation necessary to meet the standards for licensure in effect at the time of reapplication. Applicants reapplying must fulfill any deficiencies that are the result of changes to requirements that may have been implemented between former and current application.


An applicant must notify the Board immediately, but not less than within 30 days, if any information submitted on the application changes, including but not limited to: name, address, email address, telephone number, complaints, disciplinary actions, litigation, criminal involvement, and employment investigations which results in disciplinary action. Failure to do so may be grounds for denial of the application or revocation of the license, once issued.
