Certification and Licensing Requirements for Working in Other States
College of Education academic programs are designed to prepare you to apply for applicable licensure or certification in Texas and may not meet education requirements for a license or certification in another state. We make every effort to ensure information about educational requirements for licensure or certification information is current; however, licensure regulations are frequently revised.
If you are planning to pursue professional licensure or certification in a state other than Texas, we strongly recommend that you contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state to seek the most up-to-date information and guidance regarding state licensure or certification requirements before beginning an academic program. Separate from 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. 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.
Reach out to the program point of contact listed below with any questions about licensure requirements in your field.
