Applications for the LPCC in California

Applications are available on the Board of Behavioral Sciences website.

The BBS continues to clarify the instructions on its applications, so applicants are advised to download the application on the day they intend to complete it to assure that they are working with the latest version of the application.  It is not that earlier versions will be wrong, but that the current version may be clearer.

Applicants are advised not to call the BBS to ask if their application has been received. Following are ways to know if the BBS has received your application:
  1. Include a self-addressed envelope, which the BBS will return to you and you will know that they have received your application packet.
  2. An indication that the BBS has received your application is when they cash your check.  

Grandparenting Path Applications are no longer available, since the application deadline was December 31, 2011


The In-State Traditional Path Application  2A 

www.bbs.ca.gov/lpcc_program/lpcc_traditional.shtml

Exam Eligibility Application is for counselors who have completed all the education requirements and gained all supervised experience in California and are ready to take the NCMHCE.  http://www.bbs.ca.gov/lpcc_program/lpcc_is_traditional_path.shtml

Intern Registration Application is for applicants who have completed all the education requirements for California's LPCC and are applying for a registration number, so they can complete their 3,000 hours of supervised practice over a two-year period.  This form is also used for out-of-state applicants who need to complete supervised hours in California.  http://www.bbs.ca.gov/pdf/forms/lpc/pci_app.pdf


The Out-of-State Traditional Path Application  2B

www.bbs.ca.gov/lpcc_program/lpcc_oos_path.shtml

Exam Eligibility Application is for counselors licensed in another state for at least two years, or for counselors who have gained any supervised experience in another state.  Those who have no supervised experience,  fewer than 3,000 hours of supervised experience, have 3,000 hours of supervised experience, but no out-of-state license, have held a license for less than two years (see other scenarios with the application), must use the Intern Registration Application described below, to remediate their supervision hours before they are ready to use this Exam Eligibility Application.  http://www.bbs.ca.gov/pdf/forms/lpc/lpc_app_oos.pdf

Intern Registration Application can be used by out-of-state applicants, who need to register in California to complete their 3,000 hours of supervised experience, or by counselors, who have been licensed in another state for less than two years and need to complete 250 supervised hours in California, as described above.  This is the same form that appears in the In-State Traditional Path described above. http://www.bbs.ca.gov/pdf/forms/lpc/pci_app.pdf
