Virginia Board of Counseling
Check Application Status
Please allow adequate processing time for applications. Applications that are complete, fully documented, and meet the minimum requirements of the Regulations will be processed within 30 days of the last document received. You will receive an email notification of the status of your application following the evaluation of your file.
PLEASE NOTE: If you applied online, you may return to the Initial Applications website to view your checklist and track the progress of your application as well as print any additional instructions and/or forms provided by the Board.
Once you have accessed the system, enter the User ID and Password that you previously created then click Login.
- If you know your User ID but have forgotten your Password, click on the link indicating "Lost Password?” This will give you the ability to reset your Password.
- If you have forgotten both your User ID and Password, click on "Register a Person" to locate your record and create a new User ID and Password.
Once you have successfully logged in, please click the View Checklist link located next to your licensure type (i.e. Qualified Mental Health Professional-Adult) under Pending Licenses on the Welcome page.
At the top of the Checklist Information Page, you will find a link which will allow you to download/view any additional instructions/forms/guidance documents provided by the Board.
At the bottom of the Checklist Information Page, you can view the Checklist (License Requirements) that the Board utilizes as they process your application. This checklist allows you to track the progress of your application.
“Unchecked” means that the requested information has not been received.
“Completed” means that documentation related to the requirement has been received and added to your file.
“Incomplete” means that the information submitted has been received, but that some information may be missing or incorrect. You should contact the Board if you did not receive an email regarding this change to your checklist.
“Not Applicable” means that this particular requirement does not apply to you. No action is needed.
“Waived” means that this requirement has been met under some other requirement. No action is needed.
The Board keeps incomplete applications on file for one year from the date of submittal. If your application has expired, you will be required to submit a new application.
