LAC LICENSURE INSTRUCTIONS
Congratulations, on reaching this important stage of your goal to obtain an LAC license in the State of Arkansas. Please read the following information that will help you through the process of completing all the steps necessary to obtain the LAC.  There are five steps that have sets of paperwork and items that should be submitted to the board office. Each of the five steps must be completed in order before moving to the next step.

The following summary of the steps and the paperwork required in each step are described below:

Step I: Initial Application

  1. Submit an LAC application to the board office.  DOWNLOAD
  2. Include a check for $200.00 payable to AR Board of Examiners in Counseling.
  3. Include a color, passport size photo, within last 12 months, and notary affidavit of residency.
  4. Complete the core curriculum summary for LAC (one 3 hour Master’s course per category, only A or B grades are allowed).  DOWNLOAD
  5. If you are in your last semester of Grad studies, you can submit an unofficial transcript and a letter from the Dean, Program Director, or Registrar describing the courses you are enrolled in to complete your Master’s Degree. The official transcript reflecting your conferred Master’s Degree will be required prior to scheduling the oral interview.

Suggestions:

  • Collect each of these items and send all of them together in one mailing to the board office. These are necessary to complete Step One of the application process.
  • The board office will evaluate the core curriculum in order to approve you to take the National Counselor Exam (NCE) and the AR Jurisprudence Exam. An LAC license cannot be granted in Arkansas until all the core courses have been reviewed and approved by the board. Courses in progress described in #5 above for Graduate students yet to graduate, must submit the letter from the university official in order to complete the core course review.
  • If the core courses are approved, an approval letter from the board will be sent to you granting you permission to schedule the written exam through the exam provider, National Board of Certified Counselors (NBCC). The cost is $275.00 and is payable to the NBCC. Scheduling the date and time of the exam is the responsibility of the candidate for licensure, not the board. The board only provides the approval letter to take the NCE.
  • It is highly recommended that you attend an oral interview prior to the month of your official oral interview. Watching and taking notes of another LAC being interviewed is both good preparation and anxiety reducing. The board weekends are posted on the website and the LAC schedule of interviews is posted so you can know the time and date that these take place. It is important to attend one weekend and watch at least two LAC interviews. The interviews are about 30-45 minutes in length. Since you are about 2-3 months from completing each of these steps, it is imperative that you attend an oral interview while in your last semester of school.
