Limited Student Service License

(1) Upon filing a correct and complete application in form and manner prescribed by the commission, a qualified applicant may be granted a Limited Student Service License.

It is not valid for substitution of any kind.

(2) To be eligible for a Limited Student Service License the applicant must:

(a) Have a bachelor’s degree or higher from a regionally accredited institution in the United States, or the foreign equivalent of such degree approved by the commission, together with an equally valid master’s degree or other specialized preparation related to the intended service role and ordinarily equivalent to one academic year of graduate study. Awarding of a higher degree in the arts and sciences or an advanced degree in the professions from a regionally accredited institution in the United States validates a non-regionally accredited bachelor’s degree for licensure.

(b) Obtain a passing score on a commission-approved test of knowledge of U.S. and Oregon civil rights and professional ethics; and

(c) Furnish fingerprints in the manner prescribed by the commission and provide satisfactory responses to the character questions contained in the commission’s licensure application. (See also, OAR 584-036-0062 for Criminal Records Check Requirement.)

Upon application, the co-applicant district must describe its particular need in relation to the co-applicant specialist’s qualifications summarized on a submitted resume, agree to provide a mentor during the first year of the assignment, and attest that the role to be filled has been structured so as not to require a licensed school counselor or psychologist.

(4) The holder of a Limited Student Service License shall use only the title specifically approved by the commission and shall not use any unapproved title or imply any unapproved function. Titles such as “advisor” or “student service specialist” or “student assistance specialist” will more readily be approved. The following provisos apply:

(a) No holder of a limited license shall use a title containing words derived from “psychology” nor claim to be a psychologist or to render psychological services without obtaining a school psychologist license from the commission unless licensed as a psychologist or psychologist associate by the Board of Psychologist Examiners. Under ORS 675.990(1)(b), a violation of this subsection is a Class A misdemeanor.

(b) The commission at its discretion may consider a title indicating a therapeutic student service role like counseling or social work, for a specialist who has a corresponding master’s or doctor’s degree, if the applicant is licensed by the Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists or is demonstrably prevented from gaining admission to a graduate program in school counseling or school psychology and therefore cannot reasonably be required to apply for a non-renewable transitional license.

(c) The commission will ordinarily approve an appropriate social work title for an applicant licensed by the Board of Clinical Social Workers.

(5) To be eligible for renewal of the Limited Student Service License, an applicant must obtain a passing score as currently specified by the commission on a test of basic verbal and computational skills, unless the applicant held an Oregon educator license before 1985 or has a regionally accredited doctor’s degree.
