Ensuring Licensure Success: Understanding State Requirements
A professional license or certification is often required to practice and/or gain employment in the field for graduates of a number of University of Saint Francis programs. Professional licensure and certification requirements vary from state to state. We understand that our responsibility to students is to make the determination regarding each of our educational programs that customarily lead to professional licensure and whether each program’s curriculum meets the prerequisites for licensure or certification. Information can be accessed via Professional Licensure by State to help prospective students from the four states where 95% of our students are located: Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois.
At this time, we have begun working to make a determination on whether each Saint Francis program’s curriculum meets the prerequisites for licensure or certification for states other than Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, or Illinois. We will continue in our due diligence to research and post how the curricular content of the Saint Francis programs meet professional licensure requirements in each of the 50 states in which prospective and/or enrolled Saint Francis students are located, descending in order of frequency of location.
Students and prospective students: If you plan to pursue professional licensure, please know that state licensure requirements are subject to change at any time. While a program may originally meet the educational requirements for licensure, changes made by a state licensing agency could affect the program’s ability to meet any new requirements. We recommend that you contact the appropriate licensing agency in your home state for information and guidance prior to starting a program outside your state.
Relocating to another state after you begin a program could impact whether you meet that state’s requirements because licensing requirements vary by state. If you are considering moving to another state, please contact the appropriate licensing agency for professional licensure eligibility requirements.
We are here to help
