Licensure disclosure

In compliance with an agreement with the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) for participation in the National Council-State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA), Oregon State University (OSU) provides the following information regarding professional licensure through distance education. The programs listed below, delivered online by OSU Ecampus, are not formally approved for professional licensure outside of the state of Oregon, but instead, often meet the 'educational' requirements for licensure in the majority of states:

  • Master of Counseling (M.Coun)
    • Clinical Mental Health Counseling
    • School Counseling
  • Ph.D. in Counseling
  • Master of Education (Ed.M.)
    • Adult and Higher Education
    • College Student Services Administration
  • Doctor of Education (Ed.D./Ph.D.)
    • Adult and Higher Education

Confirmation as to how OSU's programs meet licensure requirements in the state(s) to which licensure is intended, should be obtained directly from the appropriate state(s) regulation and/or governing board extending licensure. However, to help facilitate this, below within the various licensure categories, general information and direct links have been provided wherever possible.
