Programs Leading to Professional Licensure or Certification

This resource was created to help students, applicants, and prospects better understand the connection many UCF programs have to professional licensure or certification requirements. It is important to understand that specific requirements can and often do vary by state. Typically, requirements include earning a degree or other educational credential in the field from an institution and program that meet certain eligibility requirements in that state (e.g., accredited status). Sometimes a program must undergo a separate authorization process by a licensing board in that state in order to qualify. To be eligible to apply for licensure or certification, graduates must often meet additional criteria such as passing a state or national exam, working in field for a minimum period of time, and/or completing a certain number of clinical hours.

The UCF programs listed below provide preparation for practicing in fields with professional licensure or certification available. If your career plans include pursuing licensure or certification, it is important to become educated on the credentialing requirements of the state in which you hope to practice. This page was created as a starting point to help connect you to this information. By clicking on the program of interest below, you will be redirected to the program’s webpage where you will find additional information about the preparation provided by the program. The program webpage also has contact information for program personnel that can help answer specific questions in this regard and who will do their best to help connect you to the credentialing requirements of the state in which you aspire to practice.
