Professional Licensure Information


The University of Toledo (UToledo) programs leading to licensure and/or advanced practice certification/endorsement, whether delivered online or face-to-face, satisfy the academic requirements for those credentials set forth by the State of Ohio.

 Requirements for licensure and/or advanced practice certification/endorsement eligibility may vary from state to state. A webpage dedicated for each of the UToledo programs leading to licensure/certification provides information regarding whether the program meets/does not meet/ or we have not yet determined if it meets educational requirements to apply for licensure in each state.

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 prior to beginning the academic program. You can also contact the appropriate licensing entity in that state for information and guidance. Contact information for professional boards in each state is available on the webpage dedicated to the professional program.

 UToledo makes 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, fingerprinting, years of professional experience, jurisprudence exams, etc. Consult with the program director/advisor for the most current information on educational and non-educational requirements.

Authorization may also 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
