Examination for the Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) - National Exam
* Please note that the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB), who owns and administers the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), has transitioned to a new exam system and vendor (Pearson Vue).  Because of this, if the Board submitted your eligibility prior to February 2015 but you have not completed the registration process, you will likely need to resubmit your request to the Board so that we can enter you into the new system. 

An approved applicant may request to take the EPPP.  The exam may be taken prior to completion of your post-doctoral supervised work experience, and either before or after the Jurisprudence exam.  To request to sit for the exam, please send (mailemail or fax) your written request to the Board's office.  Do not submit any payment to OBPE.  Your eligibility will be transmitted to the ASPPB Examination Portal, which will generate an email to you with exam registration instructions.
 
Exam scores are reported to the Board weekly. We will send you a letter notifying you of your score.  You may also login to the applicant tracking tool, which is updated when score reports are received. Your score should be posted by the Tuesday following the week you took your exam.
 
The EPPP is developed and owned by the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB).  It is a multiple choice exam, administered continuously in computerized delivery format through the Pearson network of computer testing centers.  Further information on the specifics of the exam can be found on the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Board (ASPPB) website at www.asppb.org.
