The Temporary Practice Certificate is designed for psychologists already licensed in another jurisdiction who have a limited or temporary need to provide services in Mississippi, which would otherwise require a permanent Mississippi license. For example, a forensic psychologist may plan to provide services as part of a criminal or civil case. It is not designed for those in the process of obtaining a Mississippi license, or those who have had a Mississippi license denied or revoked. Approval requires verification of current license in another jurisdiction, passing a brief written examination on psychology licensure in Mississippi, and payment of the required fee.​​​​
