PSU licensure processing fee
PSU has a required licensure-processing fee that must be submitted 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.
Request for licensure recommendation form
The request for licensure recommendation form must be submitted with the required licensure processing fee. The form is available either as a fillable pdf or Word document. Please complete the form and submit via postal mail, or attached to an email. Please note: fillable pdfs must be saved to the desktop, or printed to pdf (via software such as dopdf, or others) before sending.
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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
