Licensure/Certification Program

More Helpful Info

This information is reviewed for accuracy at least once every year in the month of June, but information will be updated ahead of this schedule if new and specific Program information is officially revealed to UNLV. Program representatives have collected this information and determined its accuracy to the best of their ability. If changes are made, UNLV will alert affected students by email, directing them to the information. If there are no changes, no emails will be sent. If you are an enrolled student at UNLV and officially report a change in the state where you are physically located and/or change to a different professional Program, UNLV will also direct you to the information by email.

The educational curriculum for your Program may or may not meet educational requirements for the state in which you are located and/or the state where you intend to practice. Pay close attention to the information to help guide decisions regarding your education and professional goals.

UNLV is required to disclose whether its curriculum meets or does not meet the curriculum requirements of other U.S. states and territories. If UNLV has not yet determined if its curriculum meets or does not meet the requirements in another state or territory, this must also be disclosed. This information is provided in the table.

Please also keep in mind that there are many requirements for the Program in addition to curriculum requirements. Licensure boards in different states and territories most often require that other criteria also be met for licensure/certification, including but not limited to:

  • passing post-graduation specific examinations;
  • graduating from programs accredited by specific accrediting agencies;
  • proof of working/practicing a specified number of hours in the discipline;
  • character, fitness, and age qualifications;
  • background checks;
  • citizenship; proof of a social security number;
  • fingerprint card;
  • drug screening;
  • and proof of malpractice insurance.

Prior to enrolling in or changing to a different Program, you should contact the licensure board in the state in which you wish to practice for the most complete and up to date information pertaining to your Program.  

It is important that you understand, should you change your Program, change your state of residence, and/or change where you intend to practice during your matriculation at UNLV, the Program requirements can be very different based upon the state involved. Also, understand that UNLV is under no obligation to change or adapt its curriculum, or secure any necessary authorizations that may be required from another state or that state’s professional licensure board should students relocate to another state during the course of their matriculation in a Program.

It is highly recommended that you contact the appropriate licensing agency in the state where you are located and/or intend to practice to confirm requirements.

Finally, you are reminded that you are obligated to give notice to UNLV to update your state of residence if you do relocate to another state during the term of your Program. Changes to the address for your physical location can be updated through MyUNLV.
