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 (USF) programs. Professional licensure and certification requirements vary 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 states through which students are located.
At the outset, we began with the most common states where students are located: Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, and Illinois. In 2023-24, we continue our work on the rest of the states and territories in which prospective and/or enrolled USF students are located.
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.
The University of Saint Francis will work with you to determine if a program meets the licensure (or certification) requirements in any state where you might have a question.
