How do I apply for a geologist license?

(1) Review the available options for licensure:
(a) If this is your initial geologist license, in WAC 308-15-050; and
(b) If you are licensed in another jurisdiction, in WAC 308-15-060.
(2) Complete the board's official application form, and submit it to the board office with the nonrefundable application fee.
(3) Verify you meet minimum educational requirements by having your official sealed transcripts sent directly to the board office from your college or university. Official sealed transcripts from schools outside the United States or Canada must be evaluated by a board-approved evaluation service. The evaluation service must send the original evaluation and a copy of the transcripts directly to the board office.
(4) Obtain personal references and verifications of experience in the format and on the forms specified in the application instructions. Verifications must be sent to the board directly from the verifier.
(5) If you are already licensed in another jurisdiction, obtain verification of your current license or certification and your examination scores on the form provided by the board. Verification must be sent directly to the board from the issuing jurisdiction.
(6) If you are applying for a specialty license, submit an applicable project list on the forms provided by the board to show you meet the minimum requirements of the professional specialty practice to the satisfaction of the board.
(7) If requested by the board, submit one or more reports you signed and stamped.
(8) If you are applying for a license by examination, your complete application, as described in subsection (9) of this section, must be received by the board at least ninety calendar days before the date of the examination.
(9) An application is not complete and will not be considered until all of the following are received by the board:
(a) Application, signed and dated, and without omissions;
(b) Application fee and, if applying for a specialty by examination, the examination fee specified in WAC 308-15-150;
(c) Official sealed transcripts sent directly from your college or university;
(d) Personal references sent directly from the reference source;
(e) Verification of experience sent directly by the verifiers;
(f) If you are already a licensed geologist in another jurisdiction, verification of examination scores and license or certification in another jurisdiction;
(g) If you are applying for a specialty license, your applicable project list; and
(h) Other documentation as requested by the board.
