74-5367.Temporary license; requirements; expiration; renewal; fees; denial, suspension or revocation. (a) The board may issue a temporary license to practice as a licensed masters level psychologist to any person who pays a fee prescribed by the board under this section, which shall not be refunded, and who meets all the requirements for licensure under K.S.A. 74-5361 et seq., and amendments thereto, as a licensed masters level psychologist except the requirement of postgraduate supervised work experience or passing the licensing examination, or both.

(b) (1) Absent extenuating circumstances approved by the board, a temporary license issued by the board shall expire upon the date the board issues or denies a license to practice masters level psychology or 24 months after the date of issuance of the temporary license. No temporary license issued by the board will be renewed or issued again on any subsequent applications for the same license level. The preceding provision in no way limits the number of times an applicant may take the examination.

(2) A temporary licensee shall take the examination within the first 12 months subsequent to the issuance of the temporary license unless there are extenuating circumstances approved by the board or if the temporary licensee does not take the examination within the first 12 months subsequent to the issuance of the temporary license and no extenuating circumstances have been approved by the board, the temporary license will expire after the first 12 months.

(c) The board shall fix by rules and regulations a fee for the application of the temporary license. The application fee shall not exceed $100.

(d) A person practicing masters level psychology with a temporary license may not use the title "licensed masters level psychologist" or the initials "LMLP" independently. The word "licensed" may be used only when followed by the words "by temporary license" such as licensed masters level psychologist by temporary license, or masters level psychologist licensed by temporary license.

(e) No person may work under a temporary license except under the supervision of a person licensed to practice psychology or masters level psychology in Kansas.

(f) The application for a temporary license may be denied or a temporary license which has been issued may be suspended or revoked on the same grounds as provided for suspension or revocation of a license under K.S.A. 74-5369, and amendments thereto.

(g) Nothing in this section shall affect any temporary license to practice issued under this section prior to the effective date of this act and in effect on the effective date of this act. Such temporary license shall be subject to the provisions of this section in effect at the time of its issuance and shall continue to be effective until the date of expiration of the license as provided under this section at the time of issuance of such temporary license.
