Federal and State regulations require that all institutions obtain the necessary authorizations and/or approvals from a state in order to conduct what are called “educational activities” within the state. Examples of educational activities include, but are not limited to: online courses, field placements such as for-credit internships, practicums, and clinical requirements. Holding such state authorization allows Mount Saint Mary’s University (MSMU) and other institutions to conduct these educational activities outside of our home states. MSMU is physically located in the state of California. Click on the button below to search authorizations/approvals by state or by online degree program. Please contact the Office of the Provost if you have any questions.
There are certain careers or fields that require a professional license. Licensure is the act of granting a license to practice a profession (Merriam-Webster, 2018). Licensure requirements to be licensed in a given field may vary by state. MSMU’s professional licensure programs are designed to prepare students for a license in the state of California. For students who wish to practice in a state other than California, you may or may not have additional requirements you must complete prior to applying for your license in your state of choice.
How will I know if the program I’m interested in meets professional licensure requirements in my state?
Licensure requirements vary by state and can often change, so click the button below to see the states for which MSMU meets the educational requirements for the professional licensure program you are interested in. Though there may be states wherein MSMU licensure programs do not meet or has not yet determined whether educational requirements meet, we are committed to (1) helping students explore available options in their academic plan in order to meet requirements in a different state and (2) guiding current students through the licensure requirements of other states. Therefore, we recommend prospective and current students to speak directly with a program advisor for additional information.View Professional Licensure State Information by Program
