Professional Licensure Disclosure
Students should be aware that licensure and certification requirements vary from state
to state and are subject to change. Licensing agencies or boards also may have requirements
in addition to an earned degree. APSU has not made a determination whether APSU’s
programs will meet all of the licensure and certification requirements in each US
state or territory. APSU recommends that students who are not Tennessee residents
or who plan to seek licensure or certification outside the state of Tennessee contact
the appropriate licensing agency or board before they enroll in an academic program
designed to lead to licensure or certification and discuss their plans with an advisor.
Please visit the Professional Licensure Disclosure webpage to review specific licensure information for your state and academic program.
