RULE §463.29Reciprocity Agreements with Other Jurisdictions

The Board may enter into reciprocal licensing agreements with other jurisdictions pursuant to §501.262 of the Psychologists' Licensing Act (the Act). In determining whether the requirements for licensure, certification, or registration in other jurisdictions are substantially equal to those prescribed by the Act, for the granting of licensure by reciprocity, the Board will consider the following:

  (1) whether the jurisdiction's qualifications for licensure are substantially equal to the requirements for a comparable license under the Psychologists' Licensing Act;

  (2) whether a jurisdiction will license an applicant who would be ineligible for licensure in Texas due to a criminal history;

  (3) whether the jurisdiction's cut-off score on a mutually required examination meets or exceeds the Texas cut-off score; and

  (4) whether the jurisdiction's supervised experience requirements for a particular license provide a measure of public protection, which at a minimum is substantially equal to the supervised experience requirements for a comparable license under the Psychologists' Licensing Act.
