EXAMINATIONS UPDATE

The Board is pleased to announce that our examination sites will be-reopening on June 22, 2020 (Fairfield) and June 29, 2020 (Glendale) and we are starting the process to reschedule all candidates. Candidates will be scheduled first based on those that had their exam cancelled, pre-applications, and then in the order the applications were received.

PSI sites are open, and candidates can call PSI to schedule written exams only or schedule for reciprocity license pickup. Please note: if you must take both portions of the exam you must wait until you are scheduled by the Board. To call PSI regarding a written exam, please call (877) 392-6422. To call PSI regarding a reciprocity license pickup, please call (800) 733-9267.

Schools are allowed to perform distance learning at this time. However, higher education institutions are not permitted to be open during Stage 2 of the governor's reopen plan. For more information, see California Department of Public Health guidelines.
