Professional Licensure & Certification

The University of Georgia makes every effort to ensure information about educational requirements for licensure or certification is current; however, state requirements may change. Separate from educational requirements, state licensure boards may require applicants to complete professional examinations, background checks, years of professional experience, residence requirements, training, etc.   

Students interested in professional licensure or certification in a state other than Georgia are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state to see information and guidance regarding licensure or certification requirements for professional practice prior to enrolling in an educational program.  

Students should review the programs below to see if the program you’re interested in meets the educational requirements for licensing/certification in your state (or state where you intend to work). If the University of Georgia has not determined whether completion of a licensure program meets educational requirements for licensure or certification in a state, you should contact the state licensing entity to determine whether completion of the University of Georgia licensure program meets educational requirements for licensure in the state. 

The University is continuing to work to confirm whether its programs meet the educational requirement for licensure in states outside Georgia. Additional information will be added to this resource as available.
