State Authorization

Professional Licensure Information


If your program leads to a professional license or certification, authorization may be required from the state professional licensing board prior to beginning a clinical or field experience 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

UToledo academic programs are designed to prepare students to apply for applicable licensure or certification in Ohio. Completion of a UToledo program may not meet education requirements for a license or certification in another state.

UToledomakes every effort to ensure information about educational requirements for licensure or certification information is current; however, state requirements may change. 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 planning to pursue professional licensure or certification in a state other than Ohio, please contact the program director/advisor to discuss if you will need to satisfy additional requirements to practice in that state. You can also contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state to seek information and guidance regarding licensure or certification requirements before beginning an academic program.
