Expedited Processing of Applications

On July 1, 2016, Business and Professions Code section 115.4 became operative and requires the Board to expedite the processing of applications submitted by candidates who provide satisfactory evidence that they are honorably discharged former members of the United States Armed Forces.

Prospective candidates who wish to utilize this expedited process must indicate to the Board that they meet the criteria and provide a copy of their Certificate of Release or Discharge from Active Duty (DD-214) or an equivalent from the Department of Defense. The Board will expedite processing upon receipt of both the eligibility or testing application and documentation indicating discharge status.
