Professional Licensure Disclosures

Federal regulations require The University of Texas at Dallas (UT Dallas) to disclose whether its degree programs meet U.S. jurisdictions' educational requirements licensure (34 § C.F.R. 668.43). Some of UT Dallas' academic programs are designed to prepare students to apply for professional licensure or certification in Texas and may not meet education requirements for a license or certification for students who live in other states. According to NC-SARA Professional Licensure, "states and other government entities have established standards of practice for the occupations or professions they have chosen to regulate, and they provide legal permission to practice those professions only to individuals who meet those standards. This is called professional licensure: professions for which people need to meet certain criteria in order to practice in that field."

The UT Dallas student's location is determined by the mailing address (not the home address) listed in the student record. If the UT Dallas student, who reside outside of Texas, is registered for a UT Dallas academic program in a licensure field, the student will receive a disclosure notification prior to the first day of enrolled courses if the program does not lead to licensure or certification in their location. If registration occurs after the first day of the semester, the student will receive a disclosure prior to Census Day.

Due to frequent revisions of licensure regulations, you are strongly encouraged to contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state to obtain the most current information and guidance regarding that state's licensure and certification requirements before beginning an academic program. In addition to educational requirements, state licensure boards may require applicants to complete professional examinations, background checks, years of professional experience, jurisprudence exams, etc.

If you are considering a clinical or field experience in a state outside of Texas, state professional licensing board approval prior to beginning a clinical or field experience may be required in that state. Please check with your program's internship or clinical coordinator with questions about state professional licensing board requirements prior to beginning an internship or field experience in another state.

If you have any questions about professional licensure or certification, please reach out to the UT Dallas program contact listed below to assist you.
