Licensure Disclosures By State

Professional Licensure and Certification Requirements
Last Updated on June 29, 2020

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.

International Enrollments

While Sullivan University works to carefully track issues related to international authorization and licensure, it is the student’s responsibility to understand current circumstances or special requirements surrounding whether the online degree selected will be recognized in the student’s country of residence and/or any country in which the student intends to work; how the collection of student data may be used in any such country; and whether the student will be subject to additional withholding taxes in addition to the price of tuition. Several countries will not formally recognize foreign online degrees, which may have implications for students who later seek to enroll in other educational programs, or for those who seek employment with such a country’s government or other employers requiring specific credentials. International students considering an academic program that leads to a professional license should first confirm with the appropriate professional licensing board in their country of residence or country in which they intend to work as to whether a Sullivan University degree is recognized when seeking licensure or certification.

Students from the following countries should confirm with Sullivan University International Office that their program of interest is able to be offered in their country:

  • Iran
  • China
  • Columbia
  • Brazil
  • Mauritius
  • Indonesia
  • Malaysia


Canada

Students from the following provinces should contact the Sullivan University International Office to confirm that your program of interest can be offered in your province:

  • British Columbia
  • Newfoundland & Labrador
  • Northwest Territory
  • Ontario
  • Saskatchewan

For all Canadian provinces, please check with the appropriate licensing agency in your province to confirm that your program of interest meets the educational requirements to pursue licensure in your province.
