Important Note for Students: If you are considering an academic program that leads to a professional license in your state, it is highly recommended that you contact the appropriate licensing agency in your home state BEFORE beginning an academic program located outside your state. Academic programs and individual graduates must meet standards set by that state in order to be eligible for a license. If you experience difficulty finding the licensure requirements for your state, please contact the program advisor or the compliance coordinator at Ohio University for help. Eligibility for licensure and/or certification may involve more than successful degree completion.
