Licensure Instructions

PSU licensure processing fee:

PSU has a required licensure-processing fee that must be submitted before, or along with, the request for licensure recommendation form. Forms will not be processed without payment. The required fee amount varies depending on the type of license and/or recommendation you are requesting, and is stated within the first step on each of the instructions (below). 

Please note that the PSU licensure-processing fee is NOT the same as the TSPC licensure application fee (listed on the last step of each of the instructions); the TSPC licensure application fee will be paid directly to TSPC.

Payment methods

There are two payment options for submitting the form and fee:

Option 1: CHECK/MAIL  

Print your typed form and pay the required fee with a check or money order made payable to PSU, and mail to the GSE Office of Licensure (address on the bottom of the instructions).

Option 2: CREDIT CARD/EMAIL 

Pay the required fee with a credit card through our online system: commerce.cashnet.com/gsel, BEFORE you send a copy of your typed form in an email to the GSE Office of Licensure (gse.licensure@pdx.edu).
