Application for Licensure by Examination
This is the traditional license application type. This type of application requires a passing score on the NBCOT examination. You do not have to reside in Arizona for this type of application. (More Info)
Application for Licensure by Universal License Recognition
If you have recently established residency in Arizona AND hold a license in another state (for at least one year), you may qualify for licensure by universal license recognition. With this option, you are required to submit proof of Arizona residency. However, you are not required to submit proof of NBCOT certification and professional recommendations. (See A.R.S. 32-4302) (Application Information)
If you have you recently graduated and have not taken the NBCOT exam, you may qualify for a limited license. (More Info)
If your 2019 income was below 200% of the Federal poverty level, you may qualify for a fee waiver. (Application)
Military Spouse Applications
A.R.S. 32-4302 also states that a license shall be issued without an examination to a person who is married to an active duty member of the armed forces of the United States and who is accompanying the member to an official permanent change of station to a military installation located in this state. The Arizona Board of Occupational Therapy Examiners doesn't require a jurisprudence exam, so you would apply for licensure by universal recognition, as the requirements are the same.
