Examination for the Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) - National Exam

Upcoming EPPP registration blackout dates… Please plan accordingly!  The Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB), who owns and administers the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP), will be moving to a new exam system and vendor.  Because of this transition, there will be a “blackout period” where the Board will not be able to submit your exam eligibility: December 31, 2014 through January 26, 2015Please click HERE for more information.

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 Professional Examination Service (ProExam) in New York, who will contact you with exam registration instructions. 
ProExam reports exam scores to the Board on a bimonthly basis.  For example:  exams taken 7-1 to 7-15 are reported around 7-22; exams taken 7-16 to 7-31 reported around 8-7.  We will send you a letter notifying you of your score.  You may also login to the applicant tracking tool, which is updated as soon as score reports are received. 
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 Prometric 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.
