Professional Licensure Disclosure

The U.S. Department of Education and the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) for participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA) requires an institution to disclose whether a program will fulfill educational requirements for licensure or certification for each state. 

The programs listed below may lead to a professional license or certification required for employment. Requirements vary from state to state. We recommend students contact the appropriate state licensing agency in their state or the state where they intend to work for up-to-date information about state licensure/certification requirements before beginning a program.
