Applying to Sit for the Marriage and Family Therapy National (MFT) Exam

The Board of Mental Health and Chemical Dependency Professionals must approve you to sit for the MFT exam through the Association of Marital & Family Therapy Regulatory Boards (AMFTRB).

To apply to take the required exam(s), you must first create a DELPROS user account.  Go to the DELPROS online portal, and then click on Apply/Manage a License and Service Requests. If you:

  • are already an existing user, log in with your email address and password under the existing user section.
  • have not yet created a DELPROS user account, click on Register.

After creating your user account or logging into the DELPROS online portal, you may begin your application for licensure to take the required exam(s).

When the Board has reviewed and approved your application, you will receive an email notification stating you have been approved to sit for the exam with an approval code. The approval code can be used more than once; however, it is your responsibility to retain the approval code.

Registering for the MFT National Exam

You must register for the exam before your application expires to allow adequate time to schedule a testing appointment. Your application is valid for two years from the date you submit it in DELPROS. You will be required to complete a new online application if your application expires.

After receiving your approval code, register online with Professional Testing Corporation’s (PTC) Online Application System. For more information about the examination process, such as testing procedures and additional ways of registering, refer to the MFT Candidate Handbook at

Re-Taking the MFT National Exam

If you fail the exam, you must register again at the PTC website with your application with AMFTRB and follow the instructions to re-apply/update your application and then proceed. You may take the exam no more than three times in any 12-month period.

To request approval to re-take the MFT National Exam go to DELPROS and log in to your e-License Dashboard. Click on Service Request in the top navigation bar, then click APPLY FOR A NEW SERVICE REQUEST and select the Request for Re-Examination service request type option.

After review and approval of your request, you will receive an email notification for approval to re-take the MFT National Exam.

After Passing the MFT National Exam

After you take and pass the exam, allow up to two weeks for the Board office to receive your official examination score. When the Board office receives your passing score and validates that you have met all requirements for licensure, your license will be issued.

You will receive an email notification stating your license has been issued including any additional details about license renewal and/or continuing education requirements.
