Professional Licensure and Certification information by College

Page Content

To facilitate your obtaining information about the licensure boards, we have divided the board information based on college. For information on which programs are overseen by which college, click the link to the Colleges and Schools page

Potential changes in requirements: Students who plan to pursue licensure outside of the State of Mississippi should be aware that requirements for professional licensure can vary drastically by state, and these requirements can change frequently and often without notice. While a program may originally meet the educational requirements for licensure, changes in requirements could impact the program’s ability to meet any new educational requirements. Students should always check with their state licensure board to confirm licensure requirements.

If you are in a program that you believe leads to licensure but you do not see it listed, email complianceFREEMississippi
