ASPPB Waiving E.Passport Fee for PSYPACT

Posted: October 12, 2020

The Division of Professions and Occupations is pleased to inform all active, licensed psychologists that the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards (ASPPB) received federal funding to help provide support for the 2020 Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES).  As part of the 2020 funding, and in hopes of increasing access to mental health care services via telepsychology, ASPPB is waiving the E.Passport application fee ($400) through December 31, 2020.

In 2018, Colorado joined the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT), an interstate compact designed to facilitate the practice of telepsychology and the temporary in-person, face-to-face practice of psychology across state boundaries. The PSYPACT Commission is the governing body of PSYPACT and issues E.Passports to grant psychologists the authority to practice in any participating PSYPACT state. 

If you already applied for an E.Passport and paid the application fee, ASPPB is issuing refunds in the order in which applications are received. If you have not received your refund, please email ASPPB at [email protected].

In order to be eligible for the E.Passport, applicants must hold a current and active psychology license in at least one PSYPACT participating state. Active, licensed psychologists in Colorado, who meet the PSYPACT requirements, may be eligible to apply. To learn more about the PSYPACT and review the full list of requirements, please visit the PSYPACT website.



Membership for CPA starts the day you join and expires 365 days later so no matter when you join you get enjoy your exclusive member benefits for an entire year!
