The degree requirements for BCBA-level certification will change, effective January 1, 2016. However, some applicants who meet the degree requirement by the end of 2015 may not be able to obtain final transcripts before the end of the year. Therefore, we will allow a 90-day grace period for applications utilizing the previous degree requirements. This grace period will apply only to applications where all of the requirements for certification were met prior to January 1, 2016 and all application materials (e.g., fees, documentation) are received by March 31, 2016. If any portion of the requirements (degree, coursework, or experience) was not completed before January 1, 2016, then the application will be subject to the new degree requirement. If any part of the application is incomplete as of March 31, 2016, then the application will be subject to the new degree requirement.
