New Federal Regulations for Programs Culminating in Certification/Licensure

On November 1, 2019, the federal government mandated that all traditional and online programs that lead to licensure/certification must disclose the following for enrolled and prospective students by July 1, 2020:

  • Provide a list of all states for which the program’s curriculum meets the educational requirements for professional licensure;
  • Provide a list of all states for which the program’s curriculum does not meet the educational requirements for professional licensure; and
  • Provide a list of all states for which the program has not made a determination of whether the curriculum meets the educational requirements for professional licensure.
