Before Applying

If you are interested in applying to a distance education or on-campus program that leads to licensure, you’ll want to make certain the program meets the educational requirements for licensure or certification in your location.

If you live outside of Tennessee or intend to practice your profession in a state other than Tennessee, check below to see if UT’s curriculum meets the state’s educational requirements for its programs that lead to licensure. If that determination has not been made yet, it will be noted. You can also find links to organizations that govern licensure for certain professions in that state. Contact the professional board specific to your career plans to learn more about licensing requirements before enrolling in any academic program.
