2021 Statute


65-5819. Provisional licensure as professional counselor; remedial requirements prescribed by board; professional title. (a) If, in evaluating any applicant for licensure as a professional counselor, the board finds that the applicant is deficient in the qualifications or in the quality of the applicant's educational experience required by K.S.A. 65-5804a or 65-5807, and amendments thereto, as applicable, or by rules and regulations adopted by the board, the board may require the applicant to fulfill remedial or other requirements, as the board may prescribe.

(b) A person who is completing requirements prescribed by the board under subsection (a) may apply to the board for provisional licensure as a professional counselor on a form and in a manner prescribed by the board. The board may issue a provisional license to practice professional counseling. A provisional license shall expire upon the earlier of the date that the board issues or denies a license to practice professional counseling or 12 months after the date of issuance of the provisional license. No provisional license shall be renewed, and no provisional license shall be issued again, upon any subsequent application for the same license level.

(c) A person practicing professional counseling with a provisional license may not use the title "licensed professional counselor" or "licensed clinical professional counselor" or the initials "LPC" or "LCPC," independently. The word "licensed" may be used by such person only when preceded by the word "provisional."
