Professional licensure disclosures

In compliance with the U.S. Department of Education and the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) for participation in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (NC-SARA), Oregon State University (OSU) provides information pertaining to professional licensure and certification in correlation with programs offered online through OSU Ecampus.

The following is recommended BEFORE beginning a program if you are considering an OSU Ecampus online program that leads to professional licensure with the intent to be licensed outside of the state of Oregon:

  • Review the licensing information provided for the applicable program(s) below
  • Contact the appropriate licensing agency in the U.S. states and territories where licensure is intended. This will enable you to obtain the most up-to-date information about licensure requirements and confirm how an OSU program facilitates those requirements.

Only a portion of the OSU Ecampus programs are formally approved for professional licensure outside of Oregon. However, while a program may not be formally approved, it may still meet all or a portion of the "educational" requirements for licensure in other states and territories. Therefore, it may be necessary for you to contact the licensing agency directly to find out if an OSU program will meet educational requirements.

Additionally, while progressing through any of these programs, we recommended that you check licensing agency requirements regularly to monitor whether they have changed in a manner that impacts your licensure plans.

To learn more, please review the licensure information provided for the program of interest:
