Examination for Professional Practice of Psychology

The State of Michigan requires graduates to sit for the Examination for Professional Practice in Psychology (EPPP) national exam as part of the licensure process for Master’s Limited License and Fully Licensed Psychologists.

The EPPP required passing score for Michigan Master’s Limited License graduates is 450 and for Doctoral level Fully Licensed Psychologists (LP) is 500.

MSP encourages and supports graduates through the process of achieving their highest level of licensure, depending on degree. Toward this goal, MSP is committed to offering and expanding helpful resources.
