COBA Applicants

Application Process

The application for a COBA certification is available on the eLicense portal.

*Please note: You must add your degree/credentials as you would like them to appear on your license in the "last name" field, as there is not a field available to display academic degrees.

Once you have created your account, you will then be directed to a page on which you will choose "APPLY FOR A NEW LICENSE."  You will then be provided with the option of choosing "Psychology Board" and then the "Certified Ohio Behavior Analyst" option under "Select a License." Finally, under "Select an Application Type" select "General Application."  You will then confirm your eligibility to apply for the COBA certification.  Upon saving and continuing the eligibility questions, you will proceed through the application documenting your personal information, background information, answer questions and attestation before submitting your application.  Upon submitting your application you will be unable to make any changes directly to your application, so please be sure to review all information prior to submitting.  After submitting your application, you will be directed to a secure payment site to process your payment for your COBA application.  Following payment of your application, you will receive email communication from the Board and a receipt.

Note: Please ensure that all documentation, to which you attest on the application site, is forwarded to the Board for the completion of your application.  All documentation required can be found on this page of the Ohio Board of Psychology's website.
