1. Submit an application for the licensing category that you are requesting, along with the required $50 fee. Certification by reciprocity will only be considered for those applicants who have taken and passed the appropriate level examinations in the state in which the applicant is licensed.
2. No applicant seeking certification by reciprocity will be granted certification in South Carolina until their licensure and qualifications have been confirmed in writing by the appropriate board or department in the state of origin. Our office will request this information directly from the appropriate board or department after your application has been processed.
3. Board staff are authorized to request certification information from the appropriate board or department in any state and from the Association of Boards of Certification (ABC) when such information is deemed necessary to determine the eligibility of an applicant for certification by reciprocity.
4. Certification equivalency in South Carolina will be determined by Board staff. Applications may require full Board review if certification equivalency cannot be determined at the staff level or if other unusual circumstances arise.
