- (17)Professional Licensure or Certification Disclosures.
The University of Houston is required under federal law to disclose information about its programs that may lead to a professional license or certification that is required for employment in an occupation. Specifically, the University of Houston is required to disclose whether these programs will fulfill the educational requirements for licensure or certification in each state where its students are located. The University of Houston is researching the educational requirements for licensure or certification outside of Texas.
At this time, the University of Houston has not made a final determination regarding whether completion of each of its undergraduate and graduate programs that may lead to a professional license or certification would be sufficient to meet the licensure requirements in other states for that occupation. Each licensing authority sets and enforces its own professional licensing standards, and these standards are subject to change. Every student should inquire directly to the licensing authority in the jurisdiction where the student plans to seek licensure in order to determine if there are mandatory requirements to be licensed or certified to practice and to confirm that you will meet the requirements for licensure before enrolling in your program of choice.
If you have any questions or if you would like assistance in determining if your selected program is authorized in a particular state, please contact your department or program.
