Complete the Criminal History Record Check Authorization form to request State of Delaware and Federal Bureau of Investigation criminal background checks.

Arrange for the Board office to receive an official transcript, sent directly from the college/university to the Board office, showing that you have a doctoral degree from a psychological studies program specifically designed to train and prepare psychologists.
A doctoral degree from a program accredited by the American Psychological Association (APA) or the Psychological Clinical Science Accreditation System (PCSAS) meets this requirement.
If your program is neither APA-accredited nor PCSAS-accredited, arrange for the Board office to receive the following to assist the Board in evaluating the program:
Course descriptions (such as the course catalog)
Completed Evaluation of Coursework form
This documentation is required in addition to the official transcript and must show that your program meets the criteria in Sections 22.214.171.124.1 – 126.96.36.199.10.4 of the Board’s Rules and Regulations.
Arrange for your supervisor(s) to submit a Supervisory Reference Form directly to the Board office.
The forms must document that you have at least 1500 hours of post-doctoral supervised experience completed in not less than one calendar year and not more than three calendar years.
If you hold (or have ever held) a license in another jurisdiction (state, U.S. territory or District of Columbia), arrange for the Board office to receive verification of licensure from each jurisdiction where you have ever held a license, sent directly from the jurisdiction to the Board office.
If you have passed the EPPP within the past five years, arrange for the Board office to receive a score report sent directly from the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) to the Board office.
