PROFESSIONAL LICENSURE

Professional Licensure

As required by the U.S. Department of Education Code of Federal Regulations, colleges and universities must communicate publicly and directly to prospective and current students if programs leading to a license or certification meet other state’s requirements.

If your chosen career requires licensure or certification, please note that requirements vary by state. There are occasions when individual states have requirements further than Florida mandates, even though graduates are eligible for a national certification exam.

Below is a listing of all City College degree and diploma programs, indicating how they meet state and national requirements.
