Professional Licensure and Certification Disclosure Requirements

Institutions providing distance education are required to provide certain general disclosures for educational programs, regardless of modality, that prepare students for professional licensure. The required information relates to whether or not the educational program meets the requirements for professional licensure in all other states. Where applicable, an institution must also indicate when such a determination cannot be made.

Professional licensure and certification requirements may vary state to state. This information is also subject to change. Students should contact the appropriate licensing agency for his or her home state to obtain the most up to date information.
