Does This Program Meet Requirements for Licensure in My State?
Each state and territory have different professional licensure and certification requirements. Other licensure requirements may include professional examinations, background checks, years of work experience, fingerprinting requirements, etc. Students who are considering an academic program that may allow them to pursue professional licensure in their state or territory are strongly encouraged to check their state’s or territory’s information and contact the appropriate licensing agency to seek information and additional guidance before beginning a program outside of their state. Licensing board and contact information, by program, is provided for each state at the links below.
Potential changes in requirements:
Licensure information is reviewed and updated on an annual basis. Students who plan to pursue licensure outside of Iowa should be aware that state licensure requirements are subject to changes. While a program may originally meet the educational requirements for licensure, changes in requirements could impact the program’s ability to meet any new educational requirements. Students should always check with their state licensure board to confirm licensure requirements.
