Application Requirements and the Oral Examination (Jurisprudence Exam)

*Documents must be received by 5PM Central Standard Time on 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 least 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
  • All official undergraduate and graduate transcripts attended from all institutions. Transcripts sent directly from the applicant and/or via email from the institution will not be accepted.

Pursuant to the provisions of the Military Family Freedom Act, Mississippi shall recognize occupational licenses obtained from other states for military members and their families.

Code Ann. §73-50-1.  If you are a military-trained applicant, military spouse or military dependent, please notify our office at the time of the application.

Pursuant to the provisions of the Universal Recognition of Occupational Licensure Act, Mississippi shall recognize occupational licenses obtained from other states by residents of Mississippi. The issuance of a license pursuant to the Universal Recognition of Occupational Licensure Act shall be subject to the provisions of Miss. Code Ann. §73-50-2. If you are seeking reciprocity through the provisions of the Universal Recognition of Occupational Licensure act, please notify our office at the time of the application.
