A professional licensure program is an academic program that is designed, marketed and/or advertised to meet the educational requirements for a specific license or certification and is required for employment in an occupation.
Florida Atlantic University (FAU) academic programs are designed to prepare students to apply for applicable licensure or certification in Florida. The educational requirements for a license or certification in another state may vary.
This resource is intended to help students, applicants, and prospects better understand the connection that many FAU programs have to state-regulated professional licensure or certification. While specific requirements can and often do vary by state, typically, requirements include earning a degree or other educational credential in the field from an institution and program that meet certain eligibility requirements in that state (e.g., accredited status). Separate from educational requirements, state licensure boards may require applicants to complete professional examinations, background checks, years of professional experience, jurisprudence exams, etc. If you are planning to pursue professional licensure or certification in a state other than Florida, Florida Atlantic University is unable to determine whether the program meets all the requirement in the state you plan on working in. Therefore, it is strongly recommended that you contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state to seek information and guidance regarding licensure or certification requirements before beginning an academic program.
The FAU programs listed below provide preparation for practicing in fields in which state-regulated professional licensure or certification may be available. If your career plans include pursuing licensure or certification, it is important to become educated on the credentialing requirements of the state in which you hope to practice.
