Accreditation or Approval: Licensure requires a degree from a university that is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, or its equivalent accrediting association, or a university that possessed unconditional approval by California's Bureau for Private Postsecondary Education at the time of the applicant's graduation.
2012 Requirements: Those who begin graduate study on or after August 1, 2012 must meet requirements that went into effect on this date. Although those who earn degrees out-of-state will be able to complete these requirements post-degree, California applicants must graduate from a program that the Board of Behavioral Sciences has pre-approved. CALPCC has not reviewed the programs on this page to be sure that they meet the 2012 requirements.
