Professional Licensure Disclosure

Auburn University offers a variety of degree programs that lead to professional licensure. The U.S. Department of Education requires that all colleges and universities communicate licensure information about their programs to prospective and current students.

The interactive map below provides details for every professional program at Auburn University which leads to special licensures or certifications. For example, to practice as a Nurse, a student must become licensed in addition to graduating from an accredited program like Auburn’s. Most of the time, each state in the United States has a special licensing board for a particular field. The requirements for licensure or certification can vary by state.

You can select a major or degree program that leads to professional licensure or certification; then, find out whether the program “meets” or “does not meet” the requirements necessary for licensure in each state. On occasion, it may be possible that we were “unable to determine” if Auburn’s program meets a specific state’s licensure/certification requirement. In the map you can find more detail about each state as well as an Auburn point of contact who is here to help you if you have any questions. More detailed information about licensing requirements can be found by hovering over the “Disclosure Statement” box.

We hope this map is useful as you begin to consider your post-graduation plans. Please note that we update this website on July 1st and January 30th each year. Please use the links provided to check the requirements for licensure in a particular state. Also, for students living and/or working outside the US, please determine with the appropriate agency whether successful completion of an Auburn degree will meet licensure requirements in the international location in which you intend to seek employment.
