Examination for Professional Practice of Psychology
Beyond the required post-grad clinical hours, the State of Michigan also 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 350 and for Doctoral level Fully Licensed Psychologists (LP) is 500 (see new rule on page 12 passed in June 2023).
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.
Navigating the EPPP procedures can be confusing. The following links are provided to alumni to assist in this process:
