Professional Licensure and Certification Disclosures

Professional Licensure and Certification Disclosures

Requirements for licensure and/or certification vary from one professional to another and from state to state. If you are considering an online academic program that leads to a professional license in your state, it is highly recommended that you contact the appropriate licensing agency in your home state BEFORE beginning the academic program located outside your state. Academic programs and individual graduates must meet standards set by that state in order to be eligible for a license. Eligibility for licensure and/or certification may involve more than successful degree completion.
