Program Licensure Disclosure

Professional Licensure Disclosure by Program

If an educational program is designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation, or is advertised as meeting such requirements, information regarding whether completion of that program would be sufficient to meet licensure requirements in a State for that occupation, including—
(A) A list of all States for which the institution has determined that its curriculum meets the State educational requirements for licensure or certification;
(B) A list of all States for which the institution has determined that its curriculum does not meet the State educational requirements for licensure or certification; and
(C) A list of all States for which the institution has not made a determination that its curriculum meets the State educational requirements for licensure or certification.

How To Use This Information:
If you are interested in enrolling in one of the programs listed below but the state you intend to seek licensure is listed under the “does not meet” or “no determination” headings, you may contact that states’ licensing board. CCCS makes every effort to ensure information about educational requirements for licensure or certification is current; however, state requirements may change. CCCS will update this information annually (last updated May 2022). Separate from educational requirements, state licensure boards may require applicants to complete professional examinations, background checks, years of professional experience, jurisprudence exams, training, etc.
