Professional Licensure

Programs with experiential learning which lead to licensure (e.g., social work, nursing) are required to abide by states' licensing requirements. This includes the licensing requirements of states participating in NC-SARA.

Programs meet the licensure requirements for the State of Ohio.  If you plan to practice outside of the state of Ohio, please check with the program as part of your programmatic research prior to beginning a course of study to determine whether your program will meet the licensure requirements of your intended state

Disclaimer: The University does not represent or guarantee that programs which fulfill the State of Ohio's license requirements will fulfill the requirements set by professional licensure boards in other US states and territories.
