Professional Licensure Information

The University of Louisville makes every effort to ensure information about educational requirements for licensure in Kentucky is current; however, licensure regulations are frequently revised. Licensure information is reviewed and updated on this site in the fall term (typically between September and November) each year. Changes in state requirements after the review period could impact the University of Louisville’s determination of whether the program meets educational requirements in a particular state. Students should check with their state licensure board to confirm licensure requirements. Separate from educational requirements, state licensure boards may require applicants to complete professional examinations, background checks, years of professional experience, jurisprudence exams, etc.

Prospective and current students should keep in mind that licensing and authorization requirements vary by state and that relocating during the course of a program to another state could impact whether that student should continue in the course or meet the eligibility requirements of that state. If students are considering relocating, they should check with the respective state board for licensure eligibility requirements.

If you live outside Kentucky and are considering enrolling in a program that leads to a professional license, we highly recommend that you contact the appropriate state licensing agency in your state or the state where you intend to work to seek the most up-to-date information about state licensure requirements before beginning the program.
