Professional Licensure and Certification Requirements of Online Programs

Professional Licensure Disclosures

In order to comply with U.S. Department of Education regulations, all higher education institutions are required to advise students as to whether their curriculum provides them with the eligibility to apply for a professional license and/or certification in the state for which they plan to practice. If you are not a resident of North Carolina, and you are taking an online course or program leading to professional licensure, Queens University cannot guarantee whether the course or program meets requirements for professional licensure in your state. Queens University recommends that you consult with our program contact or the appropriate licensing agency or board in your state or territory – including states participating in NC-SARA – prior to beginning your course of study. 

Each state is unique in its educational licensure requirements. Queens University will discuss with students or prospective students their respective or prospective degree options. For more information on state requirements for obtaining educational licensure in a specific state, please consult the state list found on the General disclosures of programs by state list.
