Appalachian State programs that lead to a professional license or certificate are intended to prepare a student for potential licensure or certification in North Carolina. Appalachian State programs meet the relevant academic requirements for the licensure or certification board/agencies in North Carolina.

If you are planning to seek a professional license or certification outside North Carolina, it is important for you to know the specific requirements of the state in which you intend to apply for licensure or certification. Licensure requirements vary from one profession to another and state-to-state.

Prior to enrollment, contact the appropriate licensing body to determine whether the professional licensure certificate or program meets the requirements for licensure in the state which you intend to practice.
