Military Spouses Relocated to New York State - Expedited Licensing Services

The New York State Education Department's Office of the Professions is pleased to announce expedited licensing services for certain military spouses whose spouse is transferred by the military to New York State.

Chapter 299 of the Laws of 2016 amends Education Law ยง6501 to provide for the expedited licensing of military spouses who, among other things, hold out-of-state professional licenses for which the requirements for licensure of such other state are substantially equivalent to the requirements for licensure in this state. This law is effective March 8, 2017.

Please check back in early 2017 for more information, instructions and forms for these expedited licensing services.
