Our rules state that applications under the “Grandfather Clause” ceased on May 1, 1989. However, applicants who have grandfathered in a state that has a current comity agreement with the Arkansas Board may be considered for licensure on a case-by-case basis without having to take the ASBOG exam.
1) A copy of the score report provided to the applicant from ASBOG
2) Scores sent directly from ASBOG to the Board.
The Board will not accept ASBOG scores as reported by a licensing Board in another state.
