Worthy of noting for those interested in knowing how to become a psychologist in Michigan is the fact that at the post-doctoral level, applicants can apply for another two-year limited license, for a fee of $90. The educational institution at which the doctoral degree was received must submit forms and transcripts to the Michigan Board of Psychology. The supervising psychologist must also submit proof that the 2000-hour internship was completed. The applicant may then take the Examination for Professional Practice of Psychology (EPPP), which is administered by the Association of State and Provincial Psychology Boards.

The EPPP is about four hours long and contains over 200 multiple-choice questions. The exam covers several broad areas of psychology. Important to consider for those interested in knowing how to become a psychologist in Michigan is the fact that applicants must score a 500 or better to pass the exam. The test may only be taken four times in one year. Michigan applicants are highly encouraged to download sample tests and other preparation materials at the ASPPB website given above.

Finally, after passing the EPPP and completing an additional 2000-hour, supervised internship, the applicant may apply for a full psychology license. The full license fee is $150 and must be renewed every two years.
