Temporary License For Military Spouses/Partners
Spouses or domestic partners of those on active duty in the US Armed Forces who are assigned to a duty station in California under official active duty military may qualify for a temporary landscape architect license with no associated license fee, if already licensed in another state.
A candidate eligible for a temporary license must provide evidence that he or she is married to, or in a domestic relationship or other legal union with, an active duty member of the US Armed Forces who is assigned to a duty station in California under official active duty military orders. Such candidates must also provide official verification of their current landscape architect license’s validity, disclose any disciplinary history, and complete a fingerprint background check. A temporary landscape architect license will expire 12 months after issuance and is nonrenewable.
NOTE: Applying for temporary licensure does not mean a license must be issued but simply requires the fee to be waived for a qualifying spouse or domestic partner of an active duty military personnel (Business and Professions Code section 115.6).
