The U.S. Code of Federal Regulations, specifically 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v) and 34 CFR 668.43(c) require disclosures by institutions regarding educational requirements for programs leading to professional licensure or certification regardless of modality. 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v) requires an institution to make readily available to enrolled and prospective students information about whether programs leading to professional licensure or certification meet educational requirements.
This regulation requires us to determine whether or not our licensure-related programs satisfy the educational requirements for professional licensure in the states where our prospective students are located.
Accordingly, we are required to disclose for each program that leads to licensure whether:
(1) the program meets the educational requirements for professional licensure in a specific state;
(2) the program does not meet the educational requirements for professional licensure in a specific state; or
(3) we have not determined whether our program meets a particular state’s educational requirements.
Because licensing requirements differ dramatically by occupational category as well as by state, we encourage prospective students to check their state legislative codes to verify the information presented here. We will strive to update this information on an annual basis by July 1 of each year.
We make reasonable efforts so that program of study curricula align with and meet the educational requirements for professional licensure. We also make reasonable efforts so that state-professional licensure information is current. However, professional licensure requirements are frequently revised and may involve non-educational requirements which may include (but are not limited to): additional post-graduation examinations or experience, application and licensing fees, criminal background checks, reference checks, fingerprint submissions, etc. Continuing education may also be required for maintenance of licensure/certification.
