Effective July 1, 2023, Florida joins the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT).
The Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT) is an interstate compact designed to facilitate the practice of both telepsychology and the temporary in-person, face-to-face practice of psychology across state boundaries.
Applications to practice under this compact are to be made directly to PSYPACT. Interested Florida-licensed psychologists may start the process for applying on or after July 1, 2023.
Although state regulatory boards are not involved in processing PSYPACT applications, general information is provided below that may be helpful. If you have additional PSYPACT questions or need further information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
