Professional Licensure Disclosure

Yavapai College offers several programs leading to professional licensure or certification in Arizona. If you are considering a licensure program, it's essential for you to understand if the program meets the requirements in the state you are planning to reside and work. Please visit http://www.yc.edu/stateauthorization  and http://www.yc.edu/generaldisclosure for additional information.

Basics of Professional Licensure

States can vary in the professions they require to be licensed and how licensure is acquired. Licensure may require one or more of the following:

  • graduate from an approved program
  • additional conditions unrelated to educational prerequisites which may include meeting certification requirements of a national organization, specific training, or passage of an exam.

Licensure and certification requirements are set by agencies, not controlled by or affiliated with Yavapai College. These requirements and state laws, regulations, and policies can change at any time.

Additional information and suggestions regarding professional licensure

  • Review the Professional Licensure by State document to begin your search to verify if the program you're interested in meets the educational requirements for licensing/certification in your home state (or the state where you intend to practice).
  • Students should review the specific academic requirements for the program in which they plan to enroll, including pre-qualifications for licensure. Yavapai College recommends that students contact the program lead or director with professional licensure/certification questions before enrolling in the program.
  • It is the student's responsibility to check with the licensing entity in their state of residence, or in the state in which they intend to obtain a license, before beginning a licensure program and for the most up-to-date information and requirements.
  • Relocating to another state while enrolled in a licensure program may impact your ability to remain in the program and/or meet the state licensure or certification requirements.
  • If you have questions regarding any program not listed on the Professional Licensure by State document, please contact the program lead or director. Many degree programs do not involve professional licensure or certification.
