Licensure Applications

Complete, initial application packets for licensure are reviewed before and approved during the Board’s monthly meetings.  Once approved, applicants will receive notice by email of the approval.

Following Board approval, the jurisprudence test link will be emailed to the applicant. The jurisprudence test is given online and results are immediately available upon completion. Once the test results are verified by the licensing specialist, the license is issued and a digital copy of the license is provided via email.

*New licensees will receive their wall certificate via U.S. mail within two weeks of juris prudence test completion.

 These application forms are "fillable" but must be printed to be notarized, and must have the additional required documents and payment submitted as a complete package.
