Professional Licensure Programs

Professional Licensure Disclosures

As part of distance education compliance efforts, the University of Utah is required to maintain a list of programs that lead to professional licensure and determinations regarding whether those programs meet educational requirements for licensure in each US State and Territory.

More specifically these determinations are required for programs designed to meet or advertised as meeting educational requirements for a license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation.  Typical programs that fall under these requirements include a variety of health-care and education-related occupations, including but not limited to: teachers, psychologists, dentists, and nurses.  The primary federal regulation creating these requirements is 34 CFR 668.43(a)(5)(v) and is linked here.

A list of programs and determinations is available on the State Authorization website here. In addition to these more general disclosures individual disclosures are emailed to students enrolled in programs that lead to licensure.

While requirements only stipulate institutions to report whether or not programs meet educational requirements for licensure,  students should know that there may be other requirements needed to obtain a professional license. These requirements often include passing a national and/or state level exam and completing a program of practical experience.

Please refer to the Licensure Disclosures page to find more information about a specific program. Please direct any questions or concerns to the State Authorization Coordinator
