Professional Accounting Licensure Notice

This information is provided in good faith to applicants as of September 15, 2020.

The U.S. Department of Education requires institutions to identify the states for which the institution has made a determination of whether a program’s curriculum meets the state educational requirements for licensure or certification in the states where students are located and provide notification of the outcome of these determinations. This requirement applies to educational programs that are designed to meet educational requirements for a specific professional licensure or certification that is required for employment in an occupation. The U.S. Department of Education does not require an institution to make an independent determination about whether a program it offers meets the licensure or certification requirements in a particular state.

The University has conducted an independent determination of the requirements for some states as noted below as of July 1, 2020 and determined that you are located in a state that falls into one of the two categories of states listed below. State requirements are subject to change and to interpretation by state regulators. In addition, state licensure boards and agencies may require applicants to meet additional requirements beyond completion of an educational program in order to obtain professional licensure or certification including, for example, passing licensure examinations, successfully completing background checks, and complying with other application requirements. Students should contact the state licensure board or agency in the state in which they intend to work to learn more about the requirements for professional licensure or certification in the state before beginning a program at the University.

The University has not made a determination whether the program’s curriculum meets any applicable state educational requirements for licensure or certification that might be required for employment as a Certified Public Accountant in any state except New York State.
