Licensing Benefits for Active Duty Military, Relocated Military Spouses, and Veterans
The Division of Professional Licensure (DPL) is pleased to offer licensing benefits to active duty members of the military, relocated military spouses, and veterans pursuant to the Veterans’ Access, Livelihood, Opportunity and Resources Act(VALOR Act) and the new VALOR Act II, signed into law on April 3, 2014.
Under the original VALOR Act, DPL and its 28 professional licensing boards offer the following benefits to qualified individuals:
- Each of DPL’s 28 boards of registration accepts relevant education, training, and service completed by an applicant for licensure as a member of the armed forces or the military reserves, toward the qualifications required for licensure.
- The license of a member of the military who is on active duty will remain valid until he or she is released from active duty, and for 90 days thereafter.
- DPL expedites the licensure process for military spouses who are licensed in other states and have left employment there to accompany a spouse relocated to the Commonwealth due to a military transfer.
Under VALOR Act II, DPL will also waive the Commonwealth’s portion of the initial licensure fee for individuals who qualify for benefits through one of the categories listed above. Applicants are advised that they may still be required to pay fees charged by private vendors who assist DPL in processing license applications or administering exams.
To apply for any of these benefits, interested parties must self-identify as an active duty member of the military, military spouse, or veteran, by downloading and completing the appropriate affidavit form listed below, and returning it to DPL along with other requested documents:
