How Long Do I Have to Apply to TSPC?

TSPC’s rules allow candidates 3-years to apply for their license, endorsement, or specialization following completion of a program. If it has been more than 3-years since completion, candidates will need to meet with a Lewis & Clark Graduate School faculty advisor to determine whether additional course work, testing, and/or field experiences are required, including admission into the current program.

How long will it take TSPC to update my license?

TSPC’s license processing time is approximately 4-12 weeks.
