Eligibility Assessment

Eligibility Assessment 

 

As of September 1, 2014, the Course Work Review Service has been suspended and has been replaced by the Eligibility Assessment service.    

The Eligibility Assessment is the first in an updated two-step exam application process. In the first step, applicants log into their profile, pay a fee for the Eligibility Assessment, and begin entering their eligibility information, including course work.  Because many child life internship programs require applicants to document that they have met the academic requirements for certification, a report similar to the Course Work Review results is available for the applicant to print at any time during the Eligibility Assessment period. Once eligibility is established, the applicant’s status will change to “candidate,” and he or she may complete the second step by paying the separate exam fee and registering for an exam administration.  

This change was initiated by the CLCC as part of an overall effort to streamline the exam application experience, and to provide applicants with a user-friendly tool for monitoring their progress toward establishing eligibility.
