Licensure Disclosures By State

Professional Licensure and Certification Requirements
Last Updated on January 8, 2021

Each state and territory have different professional licensure and certification requirements. Sullivan University is working to confirm if programs meet the educational prerequisites for professional licensure or certification outside the state of Kentucky. Other licensure requirements may include professional examinations, background checks, years of work experience, fingerprinting requirements, etc. Students who are considering an academic program that may allow them to pursue professional licensure in their state or territory are strongly encouraged to check their state’s or territory’s information below and contact the appropriate licensing agency to seek information and additional guidance before beginning a program outside of their state. Licensing board and contact information is provided under each state.

Please note that Sullivan University teaches to the license and certification standards of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. If you plan to work in any state other than Kentucky, it is your responsibility to verify that state’s permit, license or certification requirements before enrolling in a Sullivan University program. A state’s requirement may include, among other things, specialized training that is not required in Kentucky and as a result may not be sufficiently covered in Sullivan’s curriculum. Sullivan disclaims responsibility for failure of any student to meet the educational requirements for a permit, license or certification in any jurisdiction other than Kentucky.

Potential changes in requirements: Students who plan to pursue licensure outside of Kentucky should be aware that state licensure requirements are subject to changes. While a program may originally meet the educational requirements for licensure, changes in requirements could affect the program's ability to meet any new educational requirements.

An IMPORTANT NOTE for anyone relocating during the course of a program: Prospective and current students should keep in mind that licensing and authorization requirements vary by state and that relocating during the course of a program to another state could impact whether that student can continue in the course, meet the eligibility requirements of that state, and/or receive financial aid funding. If students are considering relocating, they should contact the Academic Services Office to check for authorization and licensure eligibility requirements.
