"The Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact (PSYPACT) is an interstate compact designed to facilitate the practice of telepsychology and the temporary in-person, face-to-face practice of psychology across state boundaries."  Arizona is a PSYPACT member state under A.R.S. § 32-2087. The PSYPACT Commission is the governing body for PSYPACT.  The Commission authorizes licensed psychologists to provide psychological services via telepractice  (APIT) and/or temporary practice up to 30 days (TAP) into participating states.  For more information and to apply, please visit PSYPACT.    

NOTE:  PSYPACT has amended its Rules to include that authorization to practice (APIT and TAP) cannot be delegated to any other individual.  In Arizona, a full, independent license is required to provide supervision to an unlicensed supervisee. 

All PSYPACT policies and rules can be found HERE



  • Telehealth practice is a policy area experiencing rapid change, and anyone interested in practicing in this manner into Arizona should seek the counsel of an attorney. 

  • The terms Telehealth and Telepractice can be found in the following statutes; other legal definitions may also exist:

  • Title 36, Chapter 36 of the Arizona Revised Statutes prescribes other requirements. This may, or may not, constitute a complete list of requirements to practice via telehealth. Please seek the advice of an attorney. 

  • If inquiring whether you are able to provide psychological or behavior analytic services via telepractice into another state, please contact that jurisdiction's licensing board/entity as laws and regulations vary from state to state. 

Telehealth Registry

Out-of-state licensed psychologists or behavior analysts who are not licensed in Arizona and wish to provide healthcare services via telehealth to client(s) located in Arizona may wish to consider applying for the Telehealth Registry.  This registration is for telehealth only, and is not a license.   For more information regarding application for a full, independent Arizona license, see the Psychologist Applications page or the Behavior Analyst Applications page. 

If you hold an Arizona license, you do not need to be registered in the Telehealth Registry to practice via telehealth into Arizona.  An Arizona license authorizes the licensee to provide their professional services to clients located in Arizona in person or via telehealth, including supervision. 

  • Telehealth Registry approval does NOT authorize a behavior analyst or a psychologist to provide supervision services to a trainee (see A.R.S. § 32-2091.03 and A.R.S. § 32-2071(E), (F) and (G)). You must hold a full, independent license in Arizona to provide in person or remote supervision to a trainee located in Arizona. 
  • The Registry is authorized by A.R.S. § 36-3606.  
  • Visit the Registry Application page to apply.  The application fee is $600. 
  • The registration must be updated annually, and specific reporting is required under A.R.S. § 32-3606(A)(9). There is no cost to update the registration. The annual reporting form is online HERE.  
  • See A.R.S. § 36-3606 for requirements.  Please note, Board staff cannot provide an interpretation of statutory requirements.  Please do an internet search or consult an attorney regarding terminology in this statute. 


    License Exemption Statutes  

    • If you are licensed as a psychologist in another state or Canadian province and are inquiring about temporary provision of services in Arizona you may wish to review A.R.S. § 32-2075(A)(4). The definition of "client" can be found at A.R.S. § 32-2061(4).
    • A.A.C. R4-26-101(B)(13) defines "day" in the above referenced statute as "eight [8] hours". 

    • If you are licensed in another state as a behavior analyst and are inquiring about temporary provision of behavior analytic services in Arizona you may wish to review  A.R.S. § 32-2091.08(4)
    • BCBA certification alone is NOT a license and does not authorize the practice of behavior analysis in Arizona. If you are practicing behavior analysis in a state that does not offer licensure and you do not hold a license from a state licensing board, the Board may find you do not meet the criteria for temporary practice in or into Arizona under this exemption statute. 
    • A supervisor must be licensed in Arizona to provide supervision, including remote supervision, of an unlicensed individual providing behavior analytic services in Arizona in accordance with A.R.S. § 32-2091.03(A)(2)
