ISU offers several programs that lead to professional licensure or certification in Indiana and may lead to professional licensure in other states. These programs may satisfy the relevant educational requirements set by various state licensing bodies that oversee certain professions. While ISU’s programs may satisfy the basic educational requirements for licensure, applicants for licensure may need to pass additional exams and complete required applications before becoming fully licensed. Additionally, some professions may require continuing education requirements to maintain a professional license. In some cases, reciprocity arrangements may allow licensed professionals to practice in different states for which reciprocity is recognized.
In compliance with U.S. Department of Education regulations found in 34 C.F.R. 668.43(a)(5)(v), ISU is required to disclose whether certain programs meet educational requirements for professional licensure and certification if the programs are designed or advertised as meeting such requirements. ISU has identified the following programs as ones that are designed for and advertised as meeting educational requirements for professional licensure.

Disclosures to Students
ISU will make direct disclosures via ISU email to prospective and enrolled students with a location (determined by “local address”) in a state other than Indiana regarding whether the student’s academic program satisfies educational requirements for professional licensure.
For prospective students, these disclosures will be provided after the student’s acceptance into the academic program and prior to the student’s registration for classes in the program.
For enrolled students, these disclosures will be provided within 14 days after any determination that an ISU program does not meet the educational requirements for professional licensure in a state in which an enrolled student is located.
