Academic Programs leading to Professional Licensure
At Utah Valley University, programs in the licensed professions are designed to fulfill the educational prerequisites for licensure in Utah. This means that, when a student graduates from a UVU professional program, he or she has the minimum educational qualifications to apply for Utah licensure in his/her field.
For other U.S. states and territories, this may or may not be the case. Within a given profession, educational requirements vary from state to state. To assist students who now live or may one day live outside of Utah, UVU has provided a resource that explains whether each UVU professional program fulfills educational requirements for a license credential in each U.S. state and territory
Will your academic program meet the educational requirements for the professional credential in the state or US territory you might choose to live during or after completing your UVU degree? Visit the UVU Professional Licensure website to learn more!
