Psychology Licenses Must be Renewed by

October 01, 2020.

The NC Psychology Board has decided NOT to send out pre-printed paper renewal forms to every licensee this renewal due to COVID-19 related difficulties, but instead will offer online renewal as follows:

RENEW YOUR PSYCHOLOGY LICENSE HERE

After you enter your license number and name, you will be prompted to select YOUR email address that is on file with the board to have a verification code sent

Note: You must have a current email address on file with the Board.  If your email address on file with the Board is no longer current, please follow the link below, to the form to update your email address and submit to the Board as soon as possible: link to form to update your email address

If you are required to have a Supervision Contract on file with the Board (i.e. LPAs, and Provisionally Licensed Psychologists), you also can electronically both file renewal supervision reports and renew your license online.

Continuing Education: A minimum of 18 continuing education hours are required in each biennial renewal period.  At least nine continuing education hours shall be in Category A activities which shall include a minimum of three continuing education hours in the area of ethical and legal issues in the professional practice of psychology.

In North Carolina, psychology has both doctoral-level and master's-level practitioners. Professional counselors, clinical addiction specialists, clinical social workers and marriage and family therapists require only a master's degree. Of the five allied professional mental health care disciplines, only master's-level psychologists currently requires career-long supervision. The adjacent table reflect the number of licenses per year for each discipline for 2013 through 2018, inclusive, and the growth of licensees in percentage and members. The table indicates a 4% decline in LPAs, a 6% increase in LPs while the other four disciplines have grown from 24% to 165%. The time is now for a call to action to preserve our profession and our practice.
