Application Requirements and the Oral Examination (Jurisprudence Exam)

*All Documents must be received on or before the Application Deadline date in order to be considered on-time. It is noted that the current capacity of an oral examination day is approximately 10 candidates. Therefore, a completed application near the application deadline does not ensure that you will be accepted for the oral examination that cycle. It is best to get your application in as early as possible prior to the upcoming deadlines.  

Your standard application for licensure should be submitted at minimum two weeks prior to the application deadline. A complete application includes:

  • Completed Application Form along with signed and notarized Affidavit and signed Criminal Background Request for Fingerprint Card.
  • Application Fee ($250.00 for Behavior Analyst; $100.00 for Assistant Behavior Analyst; additional $75 for Temporary License).
  • Criminal Background Check processing fee ($35.00; should accompany Application Form and can be included with Application Fee).
  • Completed Fingerprint Card (upon receipt of initial application the Executive Director of the Board will send the required card to the applicant). It is noted that a standard FBI Fingerprint Card provided by local law enforcement can also be accepted.  
  • All official undergraduate and graduate transcripts attended from all institutions via mail. Transcripts sent directly from the applicant and/or via email from the institution will not be accepted.
  • Board receipt of passed MDPS background check based on submitted Fingerprint cards from applicant (applicant must submit directly to Board).

Oral examination study materials will be emailed to applicants scheduled for the examination. The materials are also available here:
