What's New

click-calendar_02.pngStarting in January, TSPC is implementing a Telephone Consultation service for applicants and licensees.  Time slots for consultations will be limited.

Important Note: Phone conversations are conducted with a License Navigator, who can answer general licensure questions only. They aren't able to evaluate your file or make licensure decisions. To correspond with the Evaluation Staff, you will need to login to your eLicensing Portal Account and reply to you Evaluator Messages for information specific to your license.
