Professional Licensure Disclosure Statement

North Carolina Central University academic programs prepare students to sit for licensure in North Carolina. Requirements for licensure vary from one profession to another and from state to state; therefore, NCCU’s membership in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement does not guarantee academic programs which fulfill North Carolina licensure requirements will satisfy the criteria of professional licensure boards in other states or territories.

If you are interested in professional licensure, please consult with the coordinator of the degree program in which you intend to apply prior to beginning that academic program in order to determine whether the program meets licensure requirements. The U.S. Department of Education provides information about most licensed professions by states.

The list of professional associations below provides links to selected National Professional Associations in which North Carolina Central University offers online degree programs. More information on licensure requirements can be obtained by the licensing bodies provided below.  If specific professional license information is not available below, please contact NCCU Online at

Professional Licensure

If you are considering a program at NC Central University that leads to licensure or certification and you do not live in NC, please contact the prospective program coordinator to make sure that it will fulfill the state, in which you plan to practice, requirements before beginning the program.
