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 nccuonline@nccu.edu.

Professional Licensure Disclosure

The curriculum for NCCU academic degree programs meet the licensure/certification educational requirements in North Carolina and prepare students to sit for licensure/certification exams in North Carolina. The licensure boards in each state set educational requirements for licensure/certification in their state. If you are considering a program at NCCU that leads to licensure or certification and you do not live in NC, please contact the prospective program coordinator to make sure your program meets criteria in your home state (or state where you intend to work) before you apply or enroll in the program. Academic degree programs and individual graduates must meet standards set by that state’s licensure requirements in order to be eligible for a license.
