Processing your application can take approximately four (4) to six (6) weeks. Additional processing time may be required during the months of March through July due to a high volume of incoming applications. Below is information on the application process of the Board. Allowing our staff to process your application and supporting documents without duplicate submissions of documents, emails and telephone inquiries can decrease the processing time. Please know that our goal is to process your application in an efficient manner so that you can begin practicing in the state of Missouri as quickly as possible. Your assistance is greatly appreciated.
- You will be sent an email notifying you that your application and fee have been received, and your application will be put into a queue for processing.

You will be able to see what documents are still lacking or need clarification. Feel free to share your PIN with whomever you want to be able to check the status of your application.
