Each state has different professional licensure and certification requirements in disciplines such as, but not limited to, accounting, counseling, engineering, and health professions. The University of New Haven works to confirm that our programs meet the educational requirements for those programs that lead to professional licensure or certification. Below is a listing of our current programs that lead to licensure or certification. Please follow the link for the program that you are interested in. On each program page, we have provided state licensing guidance information and we make every effort to ensure licensure information is current. Licensure and certification information is reviewed and updated in March of each year.
Please note that the completion of a University of New Haven program does not guarantee employment or eligibility to receive a license or credential in every state or location in that profession. In many cases, there are state laws and there may be additional requirements (e.g., background checks and/or fingerprinting, professional exams, years of supervised professional work experience, fee requirements, etc.). These requirements can vary from state to state. Note also that some required practicums and internships can require background checks or fingerprinting.
Students who are considering an academic program that may allow them to pursue professional licensure or certification are strongly encouraged to check with the state licensing board where they intend to seek employment to confirm all requirements. Licensing board and contact information is provided for each state. It is a student's responsibility to understand the specific requirements of the state in which they intend to apply for licensure and to be aware of any changes to those requirements.
Important note for relocation during the course of a program:
Prospective and current students should keep in mind that licensing and certification requirements vary by state and that relocating during the course of a program to another state could impact whether that student can meet the eligibility requirements in the state they intend to move to. If students are considering relocating, they should contact their program adviser or department chair to check for licensure or certification eligibility requirements. Current students can check the Student Location Policy in the Student Handbook. Upon relocation or change of address, students must update their student record with the new location information within 10 days.
