ASPPB Agreement of Reciprocity (AOR)
The ASPPB Agreement of Reciprocity encourages states and provinces to enter into a cooperative agreement whereby any individual holding a license in one AOR participating jurisdiction may obtain a license to practice in another AOR participating jurisdiction. Entrance into the AOR is dependent on a state or province demonstrating that their requirements for licensure meet the standards required by other AOR participating jurisdictions. Under the reciprocity approach to mobility, all licensed psychologists in AOR participating jurisdictions are eligible for licensure in all other AOR participating jurisdictions.
